“It is impossible to provide humanitarian assistance in Afghanistan without talking to the country’s de facto authorities. I think it is very important to talk to the Taliban right now.” This was stated by the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, at a press conference after the ministerial meeting in Geneva which aims to raise over 600 million dollars in aid for humanitarian organizations to be allocated to the Afghan people. “I don’t think that if the authorities of a country behave badly, the solution is to collectively punish an entire people,” he added.
