Islamabad. Britain will not recognize the Taliban as the representative of the new legitimate government in Afghanistan. But London has to deal with this new reality. This was announced by British Foreign Secretary Dominic Robb on Friday during a visit to Pakistan, Reuters reports.
We do not recognize the Taliban government
According to Robben, London does not want Afghanistan to go into economic and social decline.
Rob said it would not have been possible for British authorities to evacuate about 15,000 people from Kabul without cooperating with the Taliban, who captured the Afghan capital on August 15.
“Our approach is that we do not recognize the Taliban as a government,” he said, adding that Britain generally recognizes states rather than governments. “We consider it important to stay in touch with them and create a direct communication channel,” Rob added.
According to Reuters, the West fears that the humanitarian crisis and the economic downturn in Afghanistan could trigger waves of displacement with millions of refugees.
However, they are wary of the Taliban’s promises. “The Taliban have given us many responsibilities – some of which are literally positive. Now we need to test them and see if they translate into action,” the British foreign leader said.
According to Robbins, Britain has released the first 30 million (மில்லியன் 34 million) humanitarian aid package to Afghanistan’s neighbors. These countries will have to bear a huge burden if there is any major outflow.
According to Robin, the budget for humanitarian aid to Afghanistan has increased to 6 286 million (3 30,330 million), although future financial assistance will be provided to the country by NGOs.
