Taliban Makes No Concessions After 10 Days of Negotiations With U.N.

U.N. officials departed from Afghanistan late last week after 10 days of negotiations with Taliban leaders brought no new concessions.

Taliban Planning Minister Kari Din Mohammad said that any past security or accessibility problems experienced by aid organizations and U.N. officials was "unintentional and incidental." Regarding women's access to health care, Mohammad claimed that services were "already there," and that the Taliban's decree banning girls from attending school is "in line with Islamic law."
