Doha: US to hold talks with Taliban officials on evacuees

 The crisis continues to escalate in Afghanistan, the U.S. has said that it will hold its first in-person conversation with Taliban representatives.

  This will be the first face-to-face meeting between them since the chaotic afghan withdrawal. Now, according to reports, the u.s delegation will meet senior Taliban representatives this weekend in the Qatari capital of Doha to discuss evacuations of foreign Citizens and at-risk afghans. The u.s state department has, however, stressed that the meeting does not show any softening of stance for the Taliban and absolutely does not indicate that it is recognizing the Taliban's takeover as a legitimate rule. Washington's decision to hold an in-person meeting comes days after Russian President Vladimir Putin's special representative to Afghanistan, announced that the country will invite Taliban representatives for international level talks in Moscow. Later this October, the united states has remained in contact with the Taliban, since the hardline Islamist group says the afghan capital on august 15th, as u. s troops pulled out, but this upcoming meeting will be the first in-person one. 

The high-level u.s delegation will include officials from the state department, the u.s agency for International Development, and other top diplomats beyond the world.
