The sixteen-article resolution referred to the US airstrike on Kabul, saying that the neighboring countries who allowed the US drone to operate in their territory are involved in this crime and would face consequences.
The resolution also called on the IEA to pay particular attention to rights of minorities, children, women, and of all people involved in justice, religious and modern education, health, agriculture, and industry in light of Sharia law.
The 16-article resolution also stressed on engagement with the world countries and asked the world countries for engagement with the Islamic Emirate rather than hostile propaganda against the IEA.
