EU calls for negotiated settlement in Afghanistan after U.S. military pullout

By: The Kabul Times

KABUL: The European Union (EU) on Thursday called for “firm commitment and constructive engagement by all parties” in peace talks in Afghanistan, after the United States and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) announced the pullout of their troops from the country.
European Commission spokesperson Nabila Massrali told a daily press briefing that the EU will continue to encourage “a politically negotiated settlement through continued direct talks between the parties,” and called for an end to the violence in the country, “which remains unacceptably high.” Also on Thursday, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken made an unannounced visit to Kabul a day after President Joe Biden said he was pulling out American forces after nearly 20 years of war.
