US, Taliban hold first talks since Afghanistan withdrawal

 Senior Taliban officials and United States representatives have discussed “opening a new page” in their countries’ relationship as they kicked off talks in Qatar, a top Afghan diplomat said Saturday. Amir Khan Muttaqi, Afghanistan’s acting foreign minister, said on Al-Jazeera TV that the focus of the Afghan delegation was humanitarian aid, as well the implementation of the agreement the Taliban signed with Washington last year which paved the way for the final US withdrawal.

The minister said the Afghan delegation had asked the US to lift its ban on the reserves of Afghanistan’s central bank. He added that the US would offer Afghan people vaccines against COVID-19.

The Taliban delegation will later meet representatives from the European Union, he added.
