Qatar's Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani said that disengagement with the "Taliban" will create a "bigger chaos."
Speaking at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, Al Thani said that after the foreign forces' withdrawal and the Taliban assumed power, there was an "absence of a clear roadmap for the way forward for Afghanistan."
“We strongly believe that disengaging with the Taliban will create a bigger chaos and will create a vacuum in the country ... we kept encouraging all the parties to continue engaging, but we believe that unfortunately after the withdrawal and Taliban assumed power over there, there was an absence of a clear roadmap for the way forward for Afghanistan,” he said.
The Qatari PM added that in the near Afghanistan will suffer from economic, social issues.
“We have been actually in contact and also facilitation for all the talks that took place after the withdrawal. So, there is always an engagement with the Taliban, even with representatives from the office of the leadership over there. And we are trying our best to address those small issues, but as I just mentioned and the absence of the strategic overview and roadmap for the way forward we will just keep trying to solve small problems and deferring the bigger problem for the future, which ... unfortunately might becoming very dangerous,” Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani said.
Meanwhile, the Islamic Emirate said it sees the interaction of the international community with the current Afghan government as beneficial for both sides.
"The countries of region and neighboring countries should adopt a balanced policy based on mutual respect, and it is clear that the Islamic Emirate wants good relations and interaction with all factions,” said Bilal Karimi, Deputy Spokesman of the Islamic Emirate.
According to political analysts, the reason for the non-interaction of the international community with the current Afghan government is the non-compliance of the Islamic Emirate with the demands of the world.
"The demands of the world of the Islamic Emirate have not been met, and they have not reached the expectations they have for Afghanistan,” said Hewad Zazai, a political analyst.
"Now is the time to begin negotiations through the mediation of Qatar and other nations that are trusted by both sides,” said Hassan Haqyar, another political analyst.
