Some political analyst said they consider Qatar to be a suitable mediator between the Islamic Emirate and the international community, and that this country can help the Islamic Emirate in its recognition by the world.
“Based on the trust between Qatar and the US, I believe that the mediation of Qatar has influence on the relations between Islamic Emirate and US,” said Najibullah Jami, a political analyst.
In reaction to recent remarks made by Rina Amiri, the US special envoy for Afghan women and human rights, US Congressman Michael McCaul, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, criticized interaction with the Islamic Emirate.
"There are more repressive edicts against Afghan women & girls today than there were when US Special Envoy Rina Amiri took office. Afghans don’t ask for more US engagement, as it isn’t helping the women & girls and is normalizing the Taliban. These meetings should stop,” the House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman said in tweet.
