Taliban is unlikely to hold the oath-taking ceremony of new Afghanistan’s government on the 20th anniversary of 9/11 United States terror attacks.
Earlier, according to several reports, the Taliban-led cabinet was planning to conduct the oath-taking ceremony of the new government in the country on September 11, 2021. The day marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks which took place in the US in 2001.
