US stresses inclusive Afghan future amid Taliban standoff

AT News

KABUL – In the latest development regarding the Taliban’s refusal to participate in the UN-organized meeting in Doha, the United States has underscored the importance of inclusivity in shaping Afghanistan’s future beyond Taliban control. US State Department spokesman Matthew Miller emphasized that while the Taliban’s absence from the international gathering was not unexpected, it does not diminish the broader Afghan population’s role in determining the nation’s trajectory.

“Despite the Taliban’s decision to decline participation in the meeting with diverse international representation, it’s important to recognize that they are not the sole stakeholders in Afghanistan’s future,” remarked Miller during a press briefing. “Our commitment remains steadfast in supporting the inclusive participation of all Afghans, including women and girls, in defining their own future.”

When questioned about the absence of certain nations, such as China and Russia, from engagements with Afghan civil society representatives, Miller refrained from direct commentary but stressed the significance of engaging with civil society actors. “We view engagement with civil society as constructive and encourage all nations to prioritize such interactions in their diplomatic efforts,” he stated.

The statement comes amidst heightened tensions and uncertainties surrounding Afghanistan’s political landscape, with the US emphasizing a broader approach that amplifies the voices of all Afghan citizens in charting the course for their nation’s future.
