Talibãs formam o governo do Afeganistão só com homens

By Jordi Bou

September 8, 2021 - O governo dos talibãs para o Afeganistão é constituído por veteranos da sua linha dura dos anos de 1990 e dos 20 anos de guerra contra a coligação liderada pelos EUA, uma decisão que não deverá congregar o apoio internacional de que precisa desesperadamente.

Appointed to the key post of interior minister was Sirajuddin Haqqani, who is on the FBI’s most-wanted list with a $5 million bounty on his head and is believed to still be holding at least one American hostage. He headed the feared Haqqani network that is blamed for many deadly attacks and kidnappings.

Drawn mostly from Afghanistan’s dominant Pashtun ethnic group, the Cabinet's lack of representation from other ethnic groups also seems certain to hobble its support from abroad.

As much as 80% of Afghanistan's budget comes from the international community, and a long-running economic crisis has worsened in recent months. Near daily flights from Qatar bring in humanitarian aid, but the needs are massive, and the Taliban can hardly afford isolation.
