the US, EU, UK, NATO and Norway have released a joint communique to somehow force the Taliban and the High Peace Council for Reconciliation led by Abdullah-Abdullah to ensure a smooth transition of power in Afghanistan.
'Its leaders also hope to attract intransigent Taliban and other militants who reject the Agreement for Bringing Peace to Afghanistan between the United States of America and the Taliban and to recruit fighters from the Syrian Arab Republic, Iraq and other conflict zones,' the report said.
Talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government are underway in Doha. After avoiding the Taliban for long, India must now accept reality and engage with it. At stake are vital interests in Afghanistan.
