Taliban not inclusive: Erdogan
President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday the Taliban’s current approach and their interim government were not inclusive but Turkey was willing to work with them if they formed a more encompassing government, broadcaster Haberturk reported.
Nato member Turkey has been working with Qatar to operate Kabul airport and open it for international travel after the Taliban took power.
It welcomed the Taliban’s initial messages, but said Turkey would evaluate its engagement of the Taliban based on their actions.
“Looking at the Taliban’s approach right now, unfortunately an inclusive, encompassing leadership has not been formed,” Haberturk quoted Erdogan as saying.
