What does Joe Biden say about the Afghan Taliban?

The US President Mr. Joe Biden said in an interview on thursday:

I can’t believe that, the Afghan Taliban’s has changed. He further said that “I think they’re going through sort of an existential crisis about do they want to be recognized by the international community as being a legitimate government. I’m not sure they do.

Wait and see how the people of Afghanistan would governed by the Afghan Taliban. The nation is currently supporting the Afghan Taliban. Afghan army didn’t fight against the Taliban’s and they easily entered Kabul city the capital of Afghanistan. The interviewer, Mr. George Stephanopoulos replied: “They care about their beliefs more.”

Mr. Biden further added:

Well, they do. But they also care about whether they have food to eat, whether they have an income that can make any money and run an economy. They care about whether or not they can hold together the society that they say they care so much about. I’m not counting on any of that. But that is part of what I think is going on right now in terms of, I’m not sure I would’ve predicted, George, nor would you or anyone else, that when we decided to leave, that they’d provide safe passage for Americans to get out.

Afghan Taliban this time trying to present themselves as they want to rule with peace and not as they ruled in the past. In back 1996 when the Afghan Taliban took control of the whole country, they stopped women’s education and they were not allowed to walk outside without head coverings. They were not allowed to work in any public or private sector.

The US President Joe Biden said in the interview that aired Thursday:

The idea that we’re able to deal with the rights of women around the world by military force is not rational. Not rational. Look what’s happened to the Uyghurs in western China. Look what’s happening in other parts of the world. Look what’s happening in, you know, in the Congo. I mean, there are a lot of places where women are being subjugated. The way to deal with that is not with a military invasion. The way to deal with that is putting economic, diplomatic, and national, international pressure on them to change their behavior

The spokesman of the Afghan Taliban Mr. Zabihullah Mujahid said:

“thoughts, ideology, beliefs” would remain as same as they were in the 1990s and they have no plan to change it. He further said there were some differences when it came to maturity, their experience and vision. He said the right of women would be determined within the framework of Sharia law, and that the international community should respect the Taliban’s “core values.
