Acting FM Muttaqi says meeting with US envoys was positive

Amir Khan Muttaqi, the Taliban’s acting foreign minister, says his talks with the US delegation in Doha, Qatar were highly positive, and both sides agreed on continuing such interactions, including political, economic and security issues.

In an interview with Al Jazeera, Muttaqi said that the Islamic Emirate asked the US to respect Afghanistan’s sovereignty, lift sanctions and unfreeze the country’s frozen assets.

The Taliban’s foreign minister said on Wednesday that they would not allow Afghanistan’s soil to be used against other countries, including the United States.

Meanwhile, the US special envoy emphasized the “immediate and unconditional” release of US citizens who had been held in Afghanistan during a meeting with the Taliban delegation in Doha.

“We want to solve the issue of foreign prisoners in Afghanistan in such a way that all parties are satisfied,” Muttaqi said.

“We assured them during the meeting with the American delegation that Afghanistan’s soil will never be used against any country, including the United States and its allies and partners. In Afghanistan, national security prevails, which is something that America itself admits. Our fight against Daesh has been successful, which the world also mentions.”

“The insecurities have decreased in an unprecedented way, and the security and defence forces of Afghanistan provide national security in every corner of Afghanistan and protect the stability and sovereignty of the country,” he said.

In Doha on July 30 and 31, senior Taliban representatives and the group’s technocrats met with US Special Representative for Afghanistan Thomas West, Special Envoy for Afghan Women, Girls, and Human Rights Rina Amiri, Chief of the US Mission to Afghanistan based in Doha Karen Decker, and other US officials to discuss critical issues.
