KABUL: Taliban Leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar Declared Afghanistan's New President and Afghanistan name Changed to "Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan."

That was the name of the country under the Taliban government ousted by US-led forces after the September 11, 2001, attacks.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief media.

Meanwhile, an Islamic state has been established in Afghanistan which will be an example of justice for the whole world.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is an Islamic state governed by the Taliban that is the de facto current government of Afghanistan since 2021, has also ruled the country from 1996 to 2001.

Between 1996 and 2001, it controlled approximately 90% of the country as an insurgency, whereas remaining regions in the northeast were held by the Northern Alliance, which maintained broad international recognition as a continuation of the Islamic State of Afghanistan.

The Islamic Emirate was overthrown by the Northern Alliance on 17 December 2001, which had been bolstered by the ISAF coalition established after a U.S.-led invasion of the country two months prior. The Taliban has continued to refer to itself as the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan in official communications from 2001 until 2021.
