Taliban Resistance in Close Contact with Civil Society in Portugal – Observer



Taliban Resistance in Close Contact with Civil Society in Portugal - Observer

Resistance to the Taliban regime in Afghanistan told Lusa this Saturday that it is in close contact with Portuguese civil society and the European Union (EU), deploring the lack of “direct relations with Portugal.”

“Unfortunately, we do not have direct relations with Portugal, but we are in close contact with Portuguese civil society,” Mehran Agbar, an adviser to the Afghan ambassador to Tajikistan, told Lusa news agency.

A year after the pro-Western Afghan government fled and the Taliban returned to Kabul, the Afghan National Resistance Front (FNR) has not established a relationship with the Portuguese government, but is “always open to building” those ties.

The diplomat also stressed that there is “very close contact” with various partners with the EU, of which Portugal is a member.


“We were able to welcome high-level EU delegates to our Afghan Embassy in Tajikistan, [iniciativa] which has proven to be very effective in many different areas of our anti-Taliban policy,” Mehran Agbar said.

He added that the NRF is also in contact with the delegation to Portugal of the Afghanistan Peace and Sports Council, a non-profit organization based in Afghanistan.

An adviser to the Afghan ambassador to Tajikistan stressed that the diplomatic mission continues to “resist” outside the country, refusing to bow to the Taliban.

The Taliban regime, which returned to power in Afghanistan a year ago, is being fought both inside and outside the country by resistance “formed by representatives of different nationalities and languages,” the diplomat explained in a telephone interview with Lusa news agency.

“We will continue to resist as long as it is necessary for the Taliban to accept the wishes of the people of Afghanistan,” he stressed.

“We are fighting for democracy, we are fighting for freedom and we are fighting for elections. To have a country and a government run and run by the people,” he added.

Mehran Agbar stressed that before and during the return of the Taliban to power, there were always attempts to hold peace talks that were never accepted.

“They wanted to seize power militarily and wanted to cause violence. Our doors have always been open for dialogue, for peaceful negotiations. But the Taliban do not accept elections and a government elected by the people,” he stressed.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
