Won’t recognise any Afghan go nment imposed by force: India, others at Doha meet
NEW DELHI: After a regional conference in Doha, India joined Qatar and several other countries in declaring that there will be no recognition of any military takeover of Afghanistan and in calling for an immediate and comprehensive ceasefire.
The bad news continued to pour in from Afghanistan Friday about the Taliban military offensive with reports saying that the insurgents were close to taking control of India's showpiece infrastructure project Salma dam, also called India-Afghanistan Friendship Dam, in the Herat province. The dam had been inaugurated in 2016 by Presi nt Ashraf Ghani and PM Narendra Modi. The province capital and Afghanistan's third-largest city, Herat city, also fell to the Taliban, reports from Afghanistan said.
Efforts to arrive at a po itical settlement in Doha have continued despite the apparent Taliban atrocities. Qatar held a meeting on August 10 first with the US, China, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, UK, UN and EU in Doha and followed it up with another meeting separately on August 12 with representatives of India, Germany, Norway, Tajikistan, Turkey, and Turkmenistan.
According to Qatar, all participants in both meetings urged the Afghan go nment and Taliban to take steps to build trust and accelerate efforts to reach a po itical settlement and comprehensive ceasefire as quickly as possible.
"Participants reaffirmed that they will not recognize any go nment in Afghanistan that is imposed through the use of military force," said the Qatar foreign ministry.
Taliban dont need Indian recognition or support. They don't care if we recognize them or not. Jaishankar should do away with this diplomatic rhetoric.
Whete does Taliban get all the arma snd financial support ? From Pakistan.
Pakistan will be the biggest loser if Taliban gains control of Afghanistan, Next target of Taliban will be Pakistan and it will also become a Taliban control state as Pakistan have lots of Jihadis following the re_gion of peace …
Making statements from Doha or Delhi is not going to make a difference on the ground. Taliban will be ruling Afghanistan as soon as the US and UK are done moving their diplomatic personnel out. It is unfortunate that Taliban which took refuge in Pakistan for the last 20 years will be in power, and closely allied with Pakistan to the detriment of India and Iran.
why are we scared of taliban we have better army navy . airforce WE RECONIZED TALBAN OR NOT THEY GOING TO RULE AFGANISTHAN

The civilized countries are doing a disservice to Afghanistan by not hel them so that the people, particularly girls and women, lives a respectable life. We are at the doorstep od 22nd century and must not allow the te rort group to revisit 6th century. An early action is a must rather than acting after the people suffers violence.
Unless Taliban is controlled immediately by world community Afghanistan will be another new hub for Is mist te rorm.
Just get back our citizens, help anyone who needs to escape Afghanistan
What a bold statement by the Modi go nment. Taliban must be shivering now. All other interested would back off from imposing a go nment after this statement. Kudos PM Modi.
Nothing can be implemented there in Afghanistan, because they are all te rorts.
It is very sad that even now such things are happening and the whole world is watching and doing nothing when many people are suffering for no mistake of theirs.
It doesn't matter to Taliban whether anyone recognises their legitimacy or not, but they est. It's real.
India must change the strategy of investment in any
I don't understand how rifle and grenade wielding te rorts much smaller in number could overwhelm Afghan armed forces much well equipped and larger in number!?
Now india will learn a lesson.. There was no need for huge inversement in afgan witj minor benefits.. In a country that cannot prect itself from militants..
It is shamefull for Afghan Army to absndon thier country , this looks like a scrpted story.
Feel concerned for Afghan people.
Dear Pakistan … you are going to have same fate … in coming 5 years …
What is the use of UN if it doesn't act ??
Humanity comes first
Earlier SOVIET union fell to taliban now the so called mighty US forces. That is why Afghanistan is called graveyard of superpowers
