Taliban seek ‘inclusive Islamic govt’ in Afghanistan! - February 1, 2021
The Taliban on Monday said the agreement reached between the group and the US last year stipulates the “formation of an inclusive Islamic government” in Afghanistan. The remarks came in a news conference in Iran’s capital Tehran on the last day of the delegation's week-long visit. Speaking to reporters, Taliban representatives -- including senior member of the negotiating team Suhail Shaheen -- said the ongoing intra-Afghan talks are “based on the agreement” reached with the US. On Sunday, Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif met with the visiting delegation and stressed the formation of an “inclusive government” in Afghanistan, with the participation of “all ethnic and political groups”. Zarif also expressed Iran’s readiness in facilitating dialogue between the Afghan government, the Taliban, and other Afghan groups, saying that the people of Afghanistan “have been wronged”.
