Int'l community must have talks with Taliban, says German chancellor

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday called for talks with the Taliban to ensure that they do not reverse the achievements Afghanistan has made over the past 20 years.

“One thing is clear. The Taliban now are a reality in Afghanistan,” Merkel told lawmakers, during the parliamentary session.

The chancellor favored diplomatic talks with the Taliban, but underlined that there won’t be any unconditional agreements.

“Our goal must be to preserve, as much as possible, the achievements of the past 20 years. For this, international community must have talks with Taliban,” she said.
