Afghan media from Doha reported yesterday (Sunday) that the Taliban described the two-day talks positively. The Taliban said Washington agrees to open the flow of humanitarian aid to Afghanistan but not formally recognizing the Taliban government.

The Afghan delegation was led by Mullah Amir Khan Muttaki, the Taliban's acting foreign minister.The U.S. has agreed to provide humanitarian aid to a desperately poor Afghanistan on the brink of an economic disaster, while refusing to give political recognition to the country's new Taliban rulers, the Taliban said Sunday. Achieving this goal would have made it easier for the Taliban to gain international economic support.
The Taliban have said that foreign nationals and locals stranded in Afghanistan who want to leave the country will be allowed to travel as normal.
