|History of Afghanistan|
The Islamic State of Afghanistan (Persian: دولت اسلامی افغانستان, Dowlat-e Eslami-ye Afghanestan) was the new official name of the country Afghanistan after the fall of the communist state. Democratic Republic of Afghanistan was the former official name of the country when ruled by the communist People's Democratic Party.
The President of the Islamic State of Afghanistan was Burhanuddin Rabbani. The country was renamed the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan by the Taliban, after seizing control of the majority of the country in 1996. The United Islamic Front for the Salvation of Afghanistan, known in the West as the Northern Alliance, was created by the Islamic State of Afghanistan and its former opponents against the Taliban. The Islamic State remained the internationally recognized representative of Afghanistan at the United Nations until 2001, when the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan was created and an Afghan Interim Administration took control of Afghanistan with American and NATO assistance.
