Among those few who had the privilege of speaking to him was former Taliban foreign affairs lawyer Ahmed Muttawak, a loyal spokesman for Mullah. Mulla Mansoor, the successor of Mulla Omar, was born near Kandahar.

Biden seeks international mobilization
The Biden administration’s latest card seeks to thwart the Taliban’s inevitable advance, prompting an international mobilization to convince them that capturing Afghanistan by force will never be acceptable. This is the purpose of the meetings in Doha, the largest meeting between the United States and the Taliban since talks began two years ago. Representatives from Russia, China, the European Union, the United Nations, the Islamic Conference Organization, and countries bordering Afghanistan are in attendance. It is hoped that in the meetings with the Taliban and in the final joint statement expected today after the final session, a united front will be presented denying all possible ties and diplomatic assistance to the Taliban government established in Kabul. Russia, China, Iran and other countries in the region that have recently received Taliban representatives have already sent messages. Sources in the Biden government explain that the Taliban’s violent takeover was condemned by all and said to be in their best interests. “It’s time to dump her and move on.” Iran has been invited to today’s talks but has decided not to attend. Moreover, while the international community today can speak with one voice, it has not hidden the fear that it may be too late to stop the Taliban’s increasingly powerful advance.
