He further added in the conference that the normalization of relations with the Taliban is contingent upon respecting the rights of all Afghan people.

This US official also reiterated that Washington does not intend to initiate its diplomatic mission in Afghanistan in the near future, but the process of engagement with the Taliban continues.

However, after six months, no country has officially recognized the Taliban government, and yet, the international community is moving forward through interaction with the current government.

Simultaneously, some regional countries have handed over their embassies in Afghanistan to the Taliban.
