Doha Agreement Empowered Taliban, Says White House Spokesperson

Thursday, 02/29/2024

Karine Jean-Pierre, White House spokesperson, has said that the Doha agreement empowered the Taliban and weakened the Afghan government.

On Wednesday, which aligns with the fourth anniversary of the Doha Agreement, Jean-Pierre said that the Taliban have not fulfilled their obligations in the agreement.

The Doha Agreement, signed on February 29, 2020, between the United States and the Taliban, is viewed by high-ranking officials of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan as the primary catalyst for the collapse of the former government in this country.

During the press conference, Jean-Pierre stated, “The Taliban has also not fulfilled their Doha commitment to engage in a meaningful dialogue with fellow Afghans leading to a negotiated settlement and inclusive political system.”

She emphasised that the US would continue to hold the Taliban to fulfill their commitments.

Nevertheless, the Taliban has said that they have fulfilled their obligations under the Doha Agreement.

Zabihullah Mujahid, the group's spokesperson, stated on Thursday to Radio Television Afghanistan, now under Taliban control, that "the general principles of the Doha Agreement have been implemented, and certain aspects of it have been violated by the US”.
