Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan ( Pashtun د افغانستان اسلامي امارت ) was proclaimed by the government of the Taliban in October 1997. The renaming of the state formalized the position of Muhammad Omar as head of state of Afghanistan. Omar had been awarded in April of last year by the leadership group of the Taliban, the title Amir al -Mu ʾ minin, the leader of the faithful, who made him the Emir of Afghanistan. Even after the renaming of the state held by them entertained the Taliban only to Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates official diplomatic relations.
