US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has said that Taliban need to reform their policies if they desire international recognition.

Addressing a media briefing in Washington he asked Afghanistan’s new rulers to uphold human rights, allow freedom of movement, halt reprisals and combat terrorism.

He also promised to look at the options to put more liquidity into Afghanistan’s tattered economy. Blinken added that while studying ways of injecting more liquidity into the Afghan economy, the US and its allies were looking to it that the funds did not directly benefit the Taliban.

He said that US has issued multiple general licenses to ensure that other countries and institutions, felt free to move forward with their assistance to Afghanistan.
