WASHINGTON: US officials met with Taliban representatives in Doha, where they denounced the deteriorating human rights situation in Afghanistan — particularly for women and girls, according to a statement from the State Department on Monday.
The American delegation to the discussions in the Qatari capital on Sunday “expressed deep concern regarding the humanitarian crisis and the need to continue to support aid organizations and UN bodies delivering assistance consistent with humanitarian principles” in Afghanistan, it said.
