United States gives conditions for recognising a Taliban government in Afghanistan

The United States has given conditions for recognising a Taliban government in Afghanistan.

US Department spokesman, Ned Price, said yesterday that the US would only recognise a Taliban government in Afghanistan if it respects the rights of women and shuns, denounces extremist movements such as Al-Qaeda.

He said that the US negotiator on Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, remained in the Taliban’s diplomatic base of Qatar and that US officials have been in talks with the insurgents in the Gulf state.

Also, US President Joe Biden promised to prioritise the treatment of women and girls under the Taliban in Afghanistan.
