Talks With Taliban Won’t Legitimize Them (US Already Did That) | Pakistan's Hina Khar | GZERO World

Want the Taliban to form a more inclusive Afghan government? Talk to them. Otherwise, don't complain about millions of starving Afghans.

That's the advice of Hina Khar, Pakistan's former foreign minister, to Western nations who say they don't want to "enable" the regime.


Khar told Ian Bremmer in a GZERO World interview at the 2022 Munich Security Conference that dialogue with the Taliban won't legitimize their human rights abuses and oppression of women. The US already did that - by inviting the group to the negotiating table in Doha.

What's more, she said, the Americans have not really exited Afghanistan because they're still holding onto the Afghan government's cash reserves.
