Talks between the US and the radical Islamist Taliban in Afghanistan will resume next week.

Talks between the US and the radical Islamist Taliban in Afghanistan will resume next week. U.S. State Department spokesman Netflix said on Tuesday (local time) that the two sides would like to meet later in Qatar. The Taliban announced on Wednesday that a “new chapter” in political relations would be opened.

According to the US State Department, the agenda for the two-week talks will include the fight against terrorism and the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. The departure of other Native American soldiers from the country should also be discussed.

US delegation led by Special Envoy to Afghanistan Thomas West. He met with Taliban representatives in Pakistan two weeks ago.

The Taliban said on Twitter that “a new round of talks between Afghanistan and the United States will begin next week in Qatar.” It will be about opening a new chapter in political relations between the two countries, clarifying economic issues and implementing the terms of the previous Doha Accord.

The Taliban returned to power in August, almost 20 years after the United States and its allies invaded Afghanistan. Since then, Islamists have sought international recognition for their government and humanitarian aid to prevent famine in a country that relies on foreign development funds.

The international community now faces the daunting task of providing urgent assistance to Afghans without supporting the Taliban regime.
