EU to Taliban: You don’t get to choose your rival

EU to Taliban: You don’t get to choose your rival

Mar 29, 2020 - 14:56


KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): EU Special Envoy for Afghanistaninfo-icon Roland Kobia, reacting to Talibaninfo-icon’s refusal to talk to the Kabul-named delegation, said on Sunday “you don’t get to choose your opponent”.

A day earlier, the Taliban ruled out peace negotiations with the team announced by the government for intra-Afghan talks. The movement alleged the team did not represent all factions.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said the group would not negotiate with the team as it did not include all Afghan factions.

Roland Kobia tweeted: “In war, like in peace, you don’t get to choose your opponent. If you want a say in the composition of the other negotiating team, fine.

“But then you should accept they have a say in yours too, to check if it is fully representative of your societyinfo-icon. Where are the womeninfo-icon, for example?”
