The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan regularly undertakes reforms in its organizational structure and officials’ capacities to further its political objectives. Such organizational reforms have been the norm in Islamic Emirate’s policies since the Islamic Movement’s inception.

On this basis, from now onwards all of Islamic Emirate’s foreign and internal political affairs are entrusted to the Islamic Emirate’s Political Office as their sole responsibility. The Political Office has full capacity and agency powers to conduct or postpone, in light of Islamic principles and national interests, negotiations with internal and foreign parties wherever and whenever it deems suitable.
