The Taliban have asked the European Union to help keep Afghan airports running so that those who want to leave can do so. This question arose during the Doha talks, according to EU reports.
“The Afghan delegation reiterated its commitment to ensuring and facilitating the safe passage of foreigners and Afghans wishing to leave the country,” a statement issued by the European External Action Service (EEAS) said. This is why it is so important that Afghan airports remain open.
The document stated that the Taliban also promised to honor its pledge to grant amnesty to Afghans who acted against it.
In addition to the humanitarian situation in the country. It gets worse as winter approaches. The European Union pledged to continue providing humanitarian assistance.
The European Union urged the Taliban to form an “inclusive government”, encourage democracy, and ensure girls’ equal access to education. The union suggested that if the Taliban met EU requirements, they could allocate additional resources, but only if they “directly benefit the Afghan people”.
The Taliban reiterated that it would respect human rights “in accordance with the principles of Islam.”
The European Union said that does not mean that it recognizes the interim government of the Taliban because they are now holding talks.
The United States will resume talks with the Taliban in Qatar this week.
