The meeting will take place in Doha.
The radical Taliban movement that came to power in Afghanistan will hold talks with representatives of the United States and the European Union in the capital of Qatar on November 27-29. This is stated in a message published on Wednesday on the official page of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA, the name of the state used by the Taliban) on Twitter.
“Foreign Minister of the IEA Amir Khan Muttaqi will meet with representatives of the United States, the EU, and other parties in the capital of Qatar on November 27-29,” the message says.
It states that during the meetings in Doha, “political issues, the release of Afghanistan’s bank reserves, humanitarian assistance, issues related to education and healthcare, and other related topics will be discussed.” The Foreign Minister of the Taliban interim government “will be accompanied by representatives of the Ministries of Education and Health, Finance, the Central Bank of Afghanistan and [Taliban-formed] security structures.”
Earlier, Washington was informed that the U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan, Thomas West, will arrive in the capital of Qatar next week, where he will discuss with the Taliban leaders the fight against terrorism on Afghan territory.
In October, representatives of the Taliban held several meetings with American diplomats in Doha. As the radicals reported, during the dialogue, the parties discussed, in particular, the provision of humanitarian assistance to the Afghan people, the implementation of the Doha Agreement, as well as the need to open a new page in relations between Kabul and Washington while respecting the territorial integrity of Afghanistan and non-interference in its internal affairs.
