Zalmay Khalilzad, Former U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation says that ISIS is the common enemy of Afghanistan and the International Community.
The Afghan-American diplomat on Twitter said that cooperation against ISIS (Daesh) can be an important part of future relations.
Khalilzad said the full implementation of the Doha Agreement is the best way forward to bring peace and stability to war-torn Afghanistan and fight the growing threats of terrorism in the country. “The execution of the Doha Agreement addresses all the concerns of Afghans and the international community,” he added.
Many Afghan politicians believe that Doha Agreement signed between the Taliban and the United States in February 2020 was the main factor in the collapse of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.
Certain Afghan politicians believe that some key elements of the Doha Agreements were kept hidden from the public, and the people of Afghanistan still do not know the full context of the peace agreement between the U.S. and the Taliban.
Previously, high-ranking Afghan politicians including President Ashraf Ghani, and Former Vice President Amrullah Saleh had asked for publications of the hidden annexes of the Doha Agreement.
Khalilzad talks about the cooperation of the Taliban against ISIS as the terror activities of the militant group have rapidly increased since the Taliban’s return to power. The militant group has carried out deadly attacks in different parts of Afghanistan in the last year and a half, which resulted in the dead the injury of scores of innocent civilians.
Over the past couple of months, IS-Khorsan has carried out brutal attacks on the Russian Embassy, Pakistani Diplomatic Mission, and a Chinese-run hotel in the heart of Kabul, which claimed the lives of local and foreign nationals.
