Qatar’s Foreign Minister has called for an end to the “ideological approach as it regards dealing with Taliban, and instead we should focus on their political engagement.”
Qatar’s foreign minister urged a shift away from “the ideological approach” in order to deal more effectively with Afghanistan’s resurgent Taliban insurgency during talks Monday at NATO headquarters.
