Breaking – Taliban defies UN Security Council and officially declares the creation of the “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan” on Twitter.
Tweet translation reads:
“Declaration of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan on the occasion of the 102nd anniversary of the country’s independence from British rule.”
Previously on August 4, 2021, the Hindustan Times reported:

“On Day 2 of India’s presidency of the UNSC, the body said that it will not support an Islamic emirate in the Asian country. It is a veiled warning for Pakistan which has been supporting and sponsoring the Taliban in its fight to topple the elected government.
However, it remains to be seen whether the world can unite to control Pakistan and its proxy before total chaos in Afghanistan, even as countries like China try to extract their pound of flesh. Watch the full video for more.”
