The Afghan radical movement “Taliban” intends to open an embassy in Qatar.

As it was announced by the Islamist website “The Voice of Jihad” on Tuesday, the Taliban has already reached a preliminary agreement with Qatar to open an office for international talks, for, as the Taliban itself claims, “it has enough authority in Afghanistan”.

The Taliban demands that for peace in Afghanistan to be settled, all foreign troops must be withdrawn from the country. It also insists on exchanging prisoners, including those who are now held in the Guantanamo prison.
