Qatar’s Foreign Minister has warned that secession from the Taliban could lead to instability and urge countries to join the group in tackling Afghanistan’s economic and economic crisis.
“If we start to create conditions and ban the alliance, we will leave the nonsense, and the question is, who will fill this need?” Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani said this in Doha on Tuesday, alongside his German counterpart Heiko Maas.
The US ally in the Gulf Arab has become a major ally in the Taliban, having received political office since 2013.
No country has realized that the Taliban and the Afghan government were captured by Kabul on August 15. Many Western nations have called on the group to form a coalition government and to respect human rights.
“We believe that without action we will not be able to achieve … real progress in security or economic matters,” Sheikh Mohammed said, adding that recognizing the Taliban as a government was not necessary.
Qatar’s foreign ministry also warned of a “terrorist” rise after the US left and called for a coalition government.
“It is our duty to urge them (the Taliban) at all times to have a participatory government that includes all parties and not to vote for any party.
“In our discussions with the Taliban, there was no right or wrong answer,” Thani said, referring to recent talks between Qatar and the new Afghan rulers.
Taliban freedom fighters celebrated with gunfire Tuesday, just hours after US forces left Kabul, shutting down an airline that forced more than 123,000 foreign nationals and Afghans to flee.
Germany sees a ‘no way around’ Taliban dialogue
Maas, too, said he saw “no way” to communicate with the Taliban.
“I personally believe there is no way to negotiate with the Taliban… because we will not have any problems in Afghanistan,” he said.
“This will help terrorism and create a bigger problem for neighboring countries.
“We are not looking at legitimate questions, but we want to address the problems that exist – affecting Afghan people, German citizens, and local workers who want to leave the country.”
Earlier, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the reservation of airports in Kabul was “very important”, as the West is now considering how to reach more people in the country.
Discussions continue over the operators of Kabul airport.
U.S. officials say the airport is in crisis, with many infrastructure damaged or damaged.
The Taliban have called on Turkey to help with security measures, but President Recep Tayyip Erdogan appeared to be pouring cold water on the idea on Sunday.
Marwan Bishara, a senior political analyst at Al Jazeera, said there seemed to be a way forward to deal with the crisis that followed the war in Afghanistan.
“The map is needed to establish Afghanistan and prevent anything, political or military, as well as terrorist groups,” he said.
Bishara said the contents of the plan, such as airport requirements and the establishment of a coalition government, would be monitored before the international authorities could send aid to the Taliban.
The US annexed Afghanistan and overthrew its Taliban regime in 2001 following al-Qaeda’s 9/11 threats, which the US criticized Afghanistan for holding.
Western officials fear that Afghanistan could once again be a safe haven for militants seeking to overthrow them.
Qatar, UAE, Kuwait and Bahrain have been instrumental in transporting Western airlines, as well as Afghan translators, journalists and others.
The UK and US will carry out their operations in Afghanistan from Doha.
