Drawing attention to the rights of the people of Afghanistan, HE Sheikh Mohammed said they must be given the humanitarian aid and assistance required under the present situation. The aid should be independent from any political calculations, he said.

HE Qatar’s FM said that he briefed his Pakistani counterpart on the developments pertaining to Kabul International Airport and thanked the Taliban for fulfilling their promises on the ground.

Furthermore, he praised the efforts of the State of Qatar and the personal role of HE Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani, who showed patience and perseverance in advancing the peace process in Afghanistan.

On his part, Qureshi said he briefed HE Sheikh Mohammed on the results of the discussions of the regional countries' meetings and their concerns about the situation in Afghanistan.

He emphasized the need for a coordinated consultative approach and joint action. He said that the common goal in Afghanistan is to ensure the protection of the rights of the Afghans and overall safety and security in the country.
