Taliban Joins Calls to Save Planet from Climate Change
'Afghanistan has a fragile climate'
Terrorist group the Taliban has expressed support in efforts to save the planet through anti-climate change actions, calling for international aid for environmental projects in Afghanistan.
The Islamic regime cited the country’s "fragile climate," saying "tremendous work" was needed to help Afghanistan become greener.
Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen said:
"Afghanistan has a fragile climate.
"There is a need for tremendous work.
"Some climate change projects which have already been approved and were funded by Green Climate Fund, UNDP, Afghan Aid, should fully resume work."
The Taliban came into power following Joe Biden's decision to pull U.S troops from the country earlier this year.
Mr. Shaheen said the Taliban was "committed to ensuring" Afghans' safety.
According to relief agencies, climate change could force 22 million into "acute food insecurity."
Shaheen wrote on Twitter:
"The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is committed to providing security and a safe environment for the work of NGOs and charity organizations."

Earlier this month, Neon Nettle reported that China’s state media supported recognition of the Taliban on the basis of them allegedly representing the will of the Afghan people.
The Chinese Global Times also pointed out the abysmal human rights record of the Taliban, most notably atrocities against women.
Global Times editor-in-chief Hu Xijin wrote:
"Some people in China now use human rights issues, such as women’s rights, as the primary standard to decide if they will like the new regime in Afghanistan."
