Special envoys from China, Russia, Pakistan meet with Taliban in Kabul, call for inclusion

Russia’s foreign ministry said on Wednesday that special envoys from China, Russia and Pakistan had met and discussed with representatives of the self-reliant government of the Taliban terrorist group.

During his visit to Kabul on Tuesday and Wednesday, the three special envoys met with Taliban-appointed caretaker Prime Minister Mohammad Hassan Akhund, Foreign Minister Amir Khan Mutaki, the finance minister and other officials.

Russia’s special envoy to Afghanistan, Zamir Kabulov, Pakistan’s special envoy to Afghanistan, Mohammad Sadiq, and China’s special envoy to Afghanistan, Yu Xiaong, were invited by the Taliban to take part in the talks, which took control of Kabul on August 15.

According to a Foreign Ministry statement, the officials discussed ways to promote friendly relations with foreign countries and Afghanistan’s neighbors. They also touched on the need for an inclusive government to promote regional integrity, national unity, human rights and economic and social relations.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters at a news conference that the three special envoys also met with former President Hamid Karzai and Abdullah Abdullah, chairman of the National Reconciliation Council under the former government.

Mansoor Ahmed Khan, Pakistan’s ambassador to Kabul, said on Twitter that the three countries had called for an inclusive government in meetings with Taliban officials.

“Special envoys are on [Afghanistan] Amb Sadiq of Pakistan has visited Kabul, Zamir of Russia and Yu Jiang of China and discussed peace, stability and inclusive governance with Afghan Acting Prime Minister M Hassan Akhund and senior leaders. Wrote.

Amid talks of inclusion and promises of a general amnesty for the terrorist group’s opponents, the Taliban is facing a growing fire this month after its move to force Kabul government workers out of the workforce and stay home and suspend secondary school education. For the girls of the country.

The decision to bar most women city workers from returning to their jobs is seen as another sign that the terrorist group is applying a harsh interpretation of Islam, despite initial promises from those involved in peace talks that they will form a representative government with others, including Afghan leaders. Was respectful of human rights. Under their previous regime in the 1990s, the Taliban barred girls and women from school, employment and public life.

The NRF said, “The position as explained by various government spokespersons is a re-establishment of its long-held backwardness that women should be sent to domestic work.” “Its complete ignorance of the very old realities of the country’s secondary education system betrays the alien nature of the regime.”

The United Nations has not recognized the Taliban as the government of Afghanistan.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said last month that the Taliban’s desire for international recognition was the only opportunity for the Security Council to press for an inclusive government and show respect for rights. Meanwhile, US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield said the UN is not yet in a position where we are ready to recognize the Taliban.

Former US ambassador to the UN Nicki Haley said on September 22 that the Taliban should not be allowed to speak at the UN.

“They are whipping women in the streets, ordering girls not to go to school and killing protesters. They have not changed, ”he said Wrote on Twitter. “The Taliban is a terrorist group that has held a country hostage, not the legitimate government of Afghanistan.”

The government says it wants international recognition and financial assistance to rebuild the war-torn country. But the makeup of the new Taliban government has created a dilemma for the UN. Many interim ministers have blacklisted UN so-called international terrorists and financiers.

Separately on Wednesday, Sen. Lindsay Graham (RSC) and representative Mike Waltz (R-Fla) made a phone call with Afghan resistance leader Ahmed Masood.

The pair said in a joint statement that they “appreciated the Afghan Taliban’s continued commitment to resisting atrocities and upholding basic human rights and freedoms.”

Graham and Waltz said that after their conversation, it was “clear” that the Taliban regime was “deeply unpopular and dissatisfied” across the country.

“Their cabinet and forces are made up of al-Qaeda and other listed terrorist groups,” the statement said.

They concluded by calling on the Biden administration to resist any attempt to recognize the Taliban as the government of Afghanistan and to resist all calls for the regime to be represented at the United Nations.
