Biden Administration Won’t Rule Out Giving Aid to Afghan Taliban
President Joe “Biden’s” national security adviser Jake Sullivan verbally expressed it is possible that the Biden administration would provide avail to the Taliban following the United States’ withdrawal from “Afghanistan” and the collapse of the Afghan regime.
Sullivan told ABC News’ “Good Morning America” on Tuesday that regarding giving financial assistance to the Taliban, that will be about the Taliban’s actions. It will be about whether they follow through on their commitments.The security adviser verbalized providing humanitarian avail to Afghans is a priority for the Biden administration and will permeate non-governmental organizations (NGOs). They need avail with deference to health and victuals avail and other forms of subsistence, and we do intend to perpetuate that. However, long-term economic and development assistance would only be provided to the terrorist organization if they keep the pledges they made to the United States, such as their commitments to safe passage for Americans and Afghan allies, their commitment to not sanction Afghanistan to be a base from which terrorists can assail the United States or any other country, their commitments with deference to upholding international obligations. It’s going to be up to them, and we will wait and visually perceive, by their actions, how we culminate up responding in terms of the economic and development assistance,
said Sullivan.Republican lawmakers have slammed the administration for endeavoring to work with the Taliban and accepting them as a legitimate regime.
We should bleed the Taliban dry. We should gainsay them legitimacy. We should avail those who are disposed to fight back against the Taliban. We should make their life miserable,
The Taliban broke the acquiescent that it made with this country from the very beginning. And pellucidly this year at multiple points in the timeline, the Taliban perpetuated to break that acquiescent, whether it was the puissance-sharing acquiescent overall by their surmounting the country, or the acquiescent to sanction Americans to pass through checkpoints,
said Rep. Mark Green (R-Tenn.). And yet here they [members of the Biden administration] are considering, contemplating, apperceiving the Taliban as a regime, as a state. Let the dementia of that sink in for just a second.Sullivan was asked if the avail, should it be given, will permeate the “Taliban.”
“It’s” not going to permeate the Taliban. … When we send humanitarian assistance to countries, we do so through international institutions like the World Health Organization or the World Food Program, and we do so through a non-governmental organization, who … are still operating on the ground in Afghanistan as we verbalize. It will not permeate the regime,
said Sullivan.The Epoch Times reached out to the White House for comment.
