Afghan Taliban make important decision over government formation in the country
The Taliban confirmed to TOLOnews on Tuesday that they seek to establish an inclusive government in Afghanistan.
A Taliban official told TOLOnews that the results of their discussions with Afghan politicians and representatives from the international community about forming an “inclusive government” will be made public soon.
Sources close to Karzai and Abdullah Abdullah said that Amir Khan Motaqi, a senior member of the Taliban leadership, in a meeting with Afghan politicians on Monday pledged to establish an inclusive government.
Mutaqi met with Hamid Karzai and Abdullah Abdullah on Monday.
“The discussion is how can an inclusive government be established that is accepted by all and that will lead society toward prosperity,” said Gul Rahman Qazi, a close aide to Hamid Karzai.
“They are busy in discussions about an inclusive government, a government that is accepted by all Afghans and where differences are overcome,” said Sayed Akbar Agha, head of the Rah-e-Nejat Council of Afghanistan.
Tuesday was the second day since the Taliban took control of Kabul. The public seeks clarification about the kind of leadership that will result.
“It should be an inclusive government. It should encompass all,” said Bilal Ahmad, a Kabul resident.
“The killings should stop. Afghans have sacrificed a lot,” said Safiullah, a Kabul resident.
