Turkey's Erdogan says he is 'open to cooperation' with Taliban


19 August 2021, 11:40 - NovostiNK
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday lauded the Taliban over its "moderate" tone and said his government is open to working with the militant Islamists.

"We welcome the Taliban's moderate statements. We are open to cooperation," Erdogan said, adding that Turkey still wants to help maintain security at the Kabul airport, Reuters reported. The airport has seen its fair share of chaos in recent days, including harrowing scenes involving Afghans clinging to a US military aircraft as it took off.

Erdogan's comments on Wednesday echoed remarks made by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu the day prior.

"We are keeping up dialogue with all sides, including the Taliban," Cavusoglu said of the situation in Afghanistan during a news conference in Jordan, according to Reuters.
