15 thousand people would not have been able to evacuate without the help of Taliban, we are ready to talk: Britain
British Foreign Minister said that we will not recognize the Taliban government.
There has been a big change in Britain's position on the Taliban's rule in Afghanistan. British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab said on Friday that we will not recognize the Taliban government. But we are ready to face new realities because we do not want to see Afghanistan broken socially and economically. During his visit to Pakistan, Dominic Raab said that it would not have been possible to evacuate 15,000 people from Kabul if the Taliban had not cooperated. The Taliban took control of Afghanistan on 15 August.
The British Foreign Minister said that we will not recognize this government. Along with this, the British minister said that we recognize the country instead of governments. Raab said that we value direct dialogue and contact. Raab's comment describes how Western countries such as Britain and the US are changing their opinion about the Taliban rule. Since the establishment of Taliban rule in Kabul, the tone of many countries including America seems to have changed. Even about the terrorist attack on Kabul airport in the past, the US had said that the Taliban is not involved in this, but the Islamic State has done it.
Experts say that help from the Taliban can also be taken from the US to deal with the Islamic State. In fact, Western countries believe that if the Taliban is not talked about, then there may be a humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. The economic and social disintegration of the country could lead to millions of refugees migrating around the world. This is the reason why many countries including America are working on the strategy of balance. However, there are still concerns about whether the Taliban continues to rule as brutal as before, or whether it treats women and people of other countries with generosity.
