KABUL (Pajhwok): Acting Foreign Minister Ameer Khan Muttaqi on Tuesday welcomed the international community support and demanded the completion of ongoing projects and delisting the Taliban leaders from black list.
He said there was more need for assistance in the areas of health, rehabilitation and supporting people affected by drought.

According to Muttaqi the Taliban proved their commitment during the US evacuation process but Washington instead of appreciating their role froze the assets of the people of Afghanistan.
Regarding in inclusive government there may some shortcoming which is something common in every structure. He said in the coming future positive changes may happen according to the situation.
