Taliban to be judged by how they live up to assurances: UK envoy 

The UK top diplomate in Pakistan has said the Taliban will be judged by how they live up to their assurances, 24NewsHD TV Channel reported on Sunday.

 “We will judge the Taliban by how they will live up to their assurances, by how they meet the undertakings they have made through actions, not just words,” British High Commissioner to Pakistan Dr Christian Turner added.

A couple of days ago, Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs of the United Kingdom, Dominic Raab said beyond the matter of recognising the Taliban government in Afghanistan, his country would continue to extend humanitarian assistance to its people.

Addressing a joint press conference along with Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, the British official said whether the UK recognised the Taliban government or not, it would like to have a 'line of communication through aid agencies to help the people of Afghanistan'. Foreign Secretary Raab also visited the Afghanistan-Pakistan border at Torkham.
