He said if the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) protect people’s rights and carry out an inclusive political process, that would bring back necessary human resources, funds and support to rebuild the country. He said the should be united to persuade the of that.

The summit was the first international meeting Kishida has attended since he took office last week.
