U.S. Secretary of State sits down with Taliban delegation in Doha

(MENAFN) The story of how Taliban came to power return to the Doha contract inked in February two years ago.

Then U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with a Taliban delegation in Doha, Qatar, to talk over “how to reduce violence in the war-torn country,” in line with a declaration from then State Department spokesperson Cale Brown.

Ironically, the mutual declaration following the conference was called “Joint Declaration between the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and the United States of America for Bringing Peace to Afghanistan.”

“The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and the United States have partnered closely since 2001 to respond to threats to international peace and security and help the Afghan people chart a secure, democratic and prosperous future,” based on the joint declaration without a reference to 20 years of destructive conflict that destroyed the core infrastructure of the nation.

“The two countries are committed to their longstanding relationship and their investments in building the Afghan institutions necessary to establish democratic norms, protect and preserve the unity of the country, and promote social and economic advancements and the rights of citizens,” it carried on.
