KABUL (Sputnik) – The Taliban * will announce the formation of a new Afghan government on August 3, but its composition remains uncertain for now, a source from the movement’s military commission told Sputnik on August 31.

The source added, on condition of anonymity, that it is not yet known who will be in government and what its format will be.

The movement had previously pledged to create a new inclusive government in Afghanistan and to respect the religious beliefs and spiritual values ​​of all Afghans.

On August 15, the Taliban completed their takeover of Afghanistan by entering Kabul, which resulted in the fall of the US-backed civilian government. As a result of these events, most countries began to evacuate their citizens and diplomatic personnel, as well as their Afghan allies.


* The Taliban are a banned terrorist group in Russia and many other countries.
