Recognition of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan

Following the first capture of Kabul in 1996, the Taliban-led Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan government ruled Afghanistan as a "limited recognised government" for the next five years. Since the second capture of Kabul on 15 August 2021 by the Taliban, the organisation has restored its government[1][2][3] and currently is the de facto ruling national government in Afghanistan.[4][5][6] Currently there have been no serious attempts made by former president Ashraf Ghani to form a government in exile, leaving the Taliban-ruled Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan as the de facto recognized government of Afghanistan by the international community.[7]
