US and Taliban meet for the first time since NATO's pulloutThis week, the UK government conducted its first discussions with the Taliban.
The discussions, which took place in Doha, addressed a wide range of topics, including the evacuation of foreign people and the economy.
According to a Taliban official quoted in Al-Jazeera, the US gave coronavirus vaccinations to Afghans, and Taliban representatives urged the US to ease a restriction on Afghan central reserves.
The Taliban has hinted that it may be willing to compromise on the evacuation of foreign people, many of whom remain in Afghanistan despite evacuation operations that have resulted in the removal of thousands.
Campaigners in the United Kingdom have warned that an estimated 400 to 500 British people remain stuck in Afghanistan, yearning for assistance to come home.
Suhail Shaheen, a Taliban spokesman, told The Associated Press that the Taliban could "tackle [Isis] alone."
On Friday, the terrorist organization claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing in Kunduz, which killed 46 minority Shi'ite Muslims and injured scores more as they worshipped in a mosque.
They follow two days of talks in Islamabad between Pakistani officials and US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman on Afghanistan. Officials from Pakistan asked the US to negotiate with the Taliban and authorize billions of dollars in aid to avert the country's economic collapse.
