When asked by WION about the details, the leader said, the group will also invite different countries for the ceremony of the government’s formation when it is finalised.   

“We want to do a proper job in announcing the government. Don't know the details yet. Will share once the government is announced,” said Mujahid.

"There was a shortage of food during the fighting," the Taliban leader said, adding, "but we will fix that now." He added, "China should cooperate with us, there are so many projects awaited due to security concerns like roads and other infrastructure, they all will be implemented soon."

"The Taliban wants to negotiate this matter (Panjshir), the jihadi commanders were used in this to resolve the matters for negotiation and dialogue. When our delegation went there they did not get positive answers, so the Islamic Emirate sent their military," he added.
