Afghanistan: What will a new Taliban government look like?


“The Taliban must understand that if they want engagement with the West, the first priority for us is safe passage for those who want to leave.” The words of the prime minister today.

Meanwhile his foreign secretary was in Qatar discussing the possibility of renewing evacuation flights from Kabul airport.

So who would the West be talking to? The structure of the new Taliban government is expected to be revealed within days.
