The United States Imposes Conditions For Afghanistan's Taliban Government's Recognition





The US has set conditions for recognizing the Taliban government in Afghanistan.


Ned Price, a spokesman for the US Department of State, stated on Monday that the US would only recognize a Taliban government in Afghanistan if it respects women’s rights and rejects, denounces extremist movements such as Al-Qaeda.

“Ultimately, our attitude toward any future Afghan government will be determined by the actions of that government. When asked about recognition, State Price told reporters, “It will depend on the Taliban’s actions.”

“A future Afghan government that upholds the basic rights of its people, that doesn’t harbor terrorists and that protects the basic rights of its people including the basic fundamental rights of half of its population – its women and girls — that is a government we would be able to work with,” AFP quoted Price as saying.


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.

In addition, US President Joe Biden stated that the Taliban’s treatment of women and girls in Afghanistan will be prioritized.

This was stated by Biden during his Monday national address.
