Taliban In Afghanistan: A group of 22 US Republican senators on Tuesday introduced a bill in Afghanistan to impose sanctions on the Taliban and all foreign governments that support it. Senator Jim Rish introduced the ‘Afghanistan Counter Terrorism, Oversight and Accountability Act’ on Tuesday. He is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
The bill demands a report from the foreign minister on Pakistan’s role in supporting the Taliban between 2001 and 2020, which led to the fall of the Afghan government… as well as the Taliban’s attack against the Panjshir Valley and Afghan resistance. They have been asked to give their assessment about the support of.
Report sought from the President in the Bill
In this, a report has been sought from the President on the identification of areas where diplomatic, economic and defense cooperation can be increased with India in addressing the economic and security challenges posed by China, Russia and Taliban in the region. It also asked for an assessment of how changes in India’s security situation after the Taliban took over Afghanistan would affect cooperation between India and the US.
“We will continue to look at the serious implications of the random withdrawal of President Joe Biden’s administration from Afghanistan,” Jim Rish said after introducing the bill to the Senate. Not many American citizens and Afghan allies were released in Afghanistan amid the threat of the Taliban. We are facing a new terrorist threat against the US, while the Taliban wrongly seek UN recognition, violating the rights of Afghan girls and women.
The bill also calls for strategies to combat terrorism, disposal of US equipment captured by the Taliban, sanctions on the Taliban and other terror groups in Afghanistan, and to prevent drug trafficking and human rights abuses.

Meanwhile, a top US military general said that the Taliban, now ruling Afghanistan, has failed to honor the 2020 Doha Agreement and, most importantly, that the organization has yet to break away from al-Qaeda. General Mark Milley, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, “Under the Doha Agreement, the US was to begin the withdrawal of its forces if the Taliban met certain conditions, which would lead to A political settlement was reached between the Taliban and the government of Afghanistan.
He said that under the agreement, the Taliban had to fulfill seven conditions and the US had to fulfill eight conditions. “The Taliban did not attack US forces, which was a condition, but it completely failed to meet any of the other conditions under the Doha Agreement,” Milley said. And perhaps the most important thing for US national security is that the Taliban never broke away from al-Qaeda or cut ties with them.
On the other hand, the US fulfilled all its conditions, the official said. It is clear that the war in Afghanistan did not end on the terms the US wanted. After the US began withdrawing its troops from Afghanistan on May 1, the Taliban began occupying many parts of the country and on August 15 it also took control of Kabul. Milley said in response to a question that he believes al-Qaeda is in Afghanistan and they want to come together again.
