Taliban fighters stand to watch inside Kabul, Afghanistan, in this file picture taken on August 16, 2021.

One of the Taliban’s officials told Reuters on Saturday that the organization would be held responsible for its activities.

This committee plans to provide a new model for governance in Afghanistan within the next two weeks, according to the official.

They entered Kabul on Sunday without firing a shot, ending their rapid takeover of the country.

People and organizations working with Afghans have claimed severe retribution against demonstrations and rounding up of individuals who criticized the Taliban or cooperated with Americans.

According to the official, “we heard of certain atrocities and crimes against people.” We will examine Talibs (members) who break the law.

he said “We understand your fear, tension, and worry. The public believes we won’t be held responsible.”

Before being overthrown by US-led troops in 2001 for harboring Al Qaeda terrorists, the Taliban governed with an iron hand from 1996 to 1996.

Gunmen went house to door in recent days, former officials said, hiding from the Taliban. With the lights out and children’s mouths covered, one family of 16 recounted a terrifying restroom run.

In other words, the new system “will safeguard everyone’s rights,” the official said.

A new governance structure will be presented in a few weeks by Taliban legal, religious, and foreign policy specialists, he said.

According to local media, Taliban political office head Mullah Baradar has arrived in Kabul.

Desperate fleeing passengers encircled Kabul’s airport, but the Taliban were not to blame. “The West could’ve planned better.”

Taliban militants armed with guns encouraged non-travelers to return home. According to NATO and Taliban sources, at least 12 individuals have been killed near the airport since Sunday.

Around 12,000 foreigners and Afghans working for embassies and international aid organizations have been evacuated from Kabul airport since Taliban militants invaded the city, a Nato officer told Reuters on Saturday.

No confrontations with Taliban militants or civilians are allowed outside the airport, thus the evacuation procedure is long and dangerous.”

“We don’t want to point fingers at the evacuation strategy.”

US President Joe Biden faced criticism over the preparation for the departure of US forces and the Taliban’s quick takeover as Western countries tried to speed up evacuations.

In a Friday White House address, Biden said, “I have seen no doubt about our trustworthiness among our friends.” [T]he contrary is true… we’re moving quickly, we’re doing as promised.”

On the other hand, he insisted on evacuating all Americans

At a time when the US had set a deadline of August 31, Nato Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg termed the situation near Kabul airport “extremely grim and challenging.”

Despite demands from both Democrats and Republicans to maintain troops in Afghanistan until every American is home, Biden has not changed his mind.

President Barack Obama and his allies have been fighting a 20-year war in Afghanistan, which Biden claimed he couldn’t foresee.

According to him, any collaboration or recognition of the Taliban would be subject to “severe conditions” based on their human rights records.

And they must find out how to keep that nation, he said.

“And we’ll impose severe, powerful requirements based on how they treat women, girls, and citizens.”
