US to recognize Afghan government that respects human rights, fights terrorists: Antony Blinken
Moscow/UNI/Sputnik: The US government will agree to work with an Afghan government that does not disregard human rights and does not support terrorists, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said at a briefing on Sunday.
"A future Afghan government that upholds the basic rights of its people and does not harbor terrorists is a government we can work with and recognize," Blinken said.
He noted that all dealings with the Taliban, including international assistance, will be halted if the movement does not meet these requirements.
The Taliban insurgents entered Afghanistan capital Kabul city on Sunday after days of clashes with the country's forces and capturing cities across the war-ravaged nation.
President Ashraf Ghani left Afghanistan on Sunday.
