Biden said the first condition was recognition of the Taliban government

U.S. President Joe Biden has said a precondition is needed to address the legitimacy of the Taliban government. This was stated in a statement on the White House website .

Biden has called on the Taliban to release Mark Frerixs, a U.S. Navy veteran captured in Afghanistan in 2020, and only then can talks begin to legitimize the Taliban government.

The Taliban should release Mark immediately before any hopes of their legitimacy will be considered. There is no room for negotiation on this issue , ”Biden said.

According to the statement, Frerixs disappeared in Kabul in early February 2020. He lived in Afghanistan as a civil engineer for ten years.

Biden said the Illinois-born Frerixs family ” had a difficult two years, prayed for his safety, had various doubts about his whereabouts and condition, and wished him well .”
