Taliban Wants ‘Inclusive Government’ in Afghanistan After Taking Over Kabul


Bloomberg: Taliban spokesman and negotiator Suhail Shaheen said the militant group is holding talks aimed at forming an inclusive government in Afghanistan after taking over Kabul.

Shaheen spoke to the AP after the Taliban overran most of the country in a matter of days and pushed into the capital as the United States scrambled to withdraw diplomats and other civilians.

The militant group took over the presidential palace, and said it plans to soon declare a new “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.” Hours earlier, American-backed President Ashraf Ghani fled the country.

“We are not worried because we have the support of the people of Afghanistan. So I think legitimacy and recognition is our right,” said Shaheen.

Earlier, a Taliban official said the group would announce a new government from the presidential palace, but those plans appear to be on hold.
