However, the US administration has declared that it will not recognize the Afghanistan government as of yet because of its human rights violation. The statement came at the end of the first direct talks between the former foes since the chaotic withdrawal of US troops at the end of August.

The US statement was less definitive, saying only that the two sides “discussed the United States’ provision of robust humanitarian assistance, directly to the Afghan people”. The talks came as the US and Britain warned their citizens on Sunday night to stay away from hotels in the capital, Kabul, particularly the well-known Serena. “US citizens who are at or near the Serena hotel should leave immediately,” the US State Department said, citing security threats in the area.

The Taliban said the talks held in Doha, Qatar, “went well”, however, Washington is still not willing to give formal recognition to the Taliban government. On Saturday, however, the Taliban ruled out cooperation with Washington on containing the increasingly active Islamic State group in Afghanistan.

The Taliban fought for 20 years to defeat the US from its home ground, and the last thing it needs is the return of the US. Taliban pledged to the international community that they will not return to their old traditions. The Taliban has to conduct the difficult and time-consuming task of rooting out ISKP cells and their limited infrastructure. It has all the knowledge and tools it needs to do it.
