|History of Afghanistan|
The Islamic State of Afghanistan (Persian: دولت اسلامی افغانستان, Dowlat-e Eslami-ye Afghanestan) was the official name of the country of Afghanistan after the fall of the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan. It existed alongside the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan ruled by the Taliban, until the Emirate was overthrown by the United States as part of the Invasion of Afghanistan.
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 Western Hemisphere 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.
