Taliban will ‘cooperate’ with humanitarian groups
The Taliban encouraged the complete implementation of the Doha deal on Monday, calling it the “best way for resolving problems” that arose following the group’s capture of Kabul in August of this year.
The statements came following a two-day meeting in Doha between the delegations of the US and Afghan Taliban to address political and other matters.
In a statement, Afghanistan’s foreign ministry asked the international community not to associate humanitarian aid with political concerns. “The US representatives stated that they will give humanitarian assistance to Afghans and will provide facilities for other humanitarian organisations to deliver aid.”
The Taliban stated that their administration welcomed the help and that it would “cooperate” with humanitarian organisations to ensure that it was distributed in a transparent way. The Taliban will also “facilitate principled movement of foreign nationals,” according to the statement.
The statement further added “detailed discussions were held during the meeting about all relevant issues. And efforts should be exerted to restore diplomatic relations to a better state.”

Earlier, there was a development that Russia will invite Taliban representatives to international talks on Afghanistan that will be held in Moscow on October 20, according to President Vladimir Putin’s special representative.
In comments published by Russian news media, the representative, Zamir Kabulov, did not offer more specifics on the planned meeting. Further details will be revealed after the talks on 20th October.
Russia is concerned about the potential for regional repercussions, as well as the prospect of extremists invading former Soviet countries in Central Asia, which Moscow sees as a potential defensive challenge.
Taliban meeting with Russia will also prove to be a big development in the current situation of the geographical location of South Asia.
