U.S. Asks United Nations to Extend Taliban’s Travel-Ban Waiver
The U.S. is pushing to extend a United Nations waiver on a travel ban against the Taliban, Western officials say, an effort meant to facilitate negotiations with the group and part of the U.S.’s broader diplomatic overture to encourage the group to abide by its human rights and antiterror commitments. If approved by the U.N. Security Council, the extension of the waiver would allow a Taliban delegation to travel to Doha, Qatar, where negotiations with U.S. officials have typically been held. The current waiver expires next week and the Security Council on Tuesday is expected to consider extending it. The waiver would also allow access to banking services while traveling.
