KABUL, July 24 (Xinhua) -- Acting Foreign Minister of the Afghan interim government Amir Khan Muttaqi left Kabul for Uzbekistan capital Tashkent on Sunday to attend an international conference on Afghanistan, deputy spokesman for the Taliban-run caretaker government's foreign ministry Hafiz Zia Ahmad said.
Heading a high-ranking delegation, Muttaqi will brief the participants of the conference on the situation in Afghanistan, Ahmad said on his Twitter account.
Uzbekistan is to host a two-day international conference that will open on Monday, with the participation of regional countries and international agencies reportedly focusing on the situation in Afghanistan, security, peace and economic development of the region.
Since assuming power in mid-August 2021, Afghanistan's new ruling authorities have yet to officially win international recognition, although the international community has been engaged with the administration in Kabul. ■
