US & Taliban Should Discuss Formation of Mutually Agreeable Government, Says Khalilzad

Saturday, 09/03/2022

Zalmay Khalilzad, the former US Special Representative in Afghanistan, said that the Taliban have violated the Doha agreement.

Khalilzad said that the US and Taliban should discuss the unimplemented issues, including the formation of a government based on mutual understanding.

Earlier during a security meeting in Islamabad, Khalilzad had said that in the current political structure, the Taliban has not acted according to the Doha agreement.

He had said that according to the Doha Agreement, an inclusive government should be established through negotiations.

The formation of an inclusive government is one of the main demands of the international community from the Taliban.

However, the Taliban claim that they have an inclusive government in place and have sought recognition from the international community.

In an interview with TOLOnews Khalilzad, however, said that the Taliban must reconsider their decisions, including the closure of girls' schools in Afghanistan.

The former US diplomat emphasised that the Taliban should not miss this opportunity.

Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesperson of the Taliban, said that these statements were Khalilzad’s personal opinion.
