Key anti-Taliban figures gather in Vienna for strategic meeting
Vienna witnessed the second summit of political figures united against the Taliban on Monday, April 24, highlighting their ongoing commitment to continuing resistance against the Taliban. The Austrian Institute of International Affairs hosted and organized the meeting.
The main agenda of the meeting revolved around achieving harmonization between various factions and political figures who oppose the Taliban, with a shared objective of preventing the international recognition of the Taliban’s self-proclaimed “government” and advocating for the formation of an inclusive government in Afghanistan.
Key figures such as Ahmad Massoud, Zulmai Rasool, Rangin Dadfar Sepenta, Fazel Ahmad Manawi, Shahgul Rezaei, Shukrai Barakzai, Anarkali Hunaryar, along with other notable attendees including Mohammad Mohaqeq and Salahuddin Rabbani, actively participated in the meeting, either in person or virtually.
Previously, multiple political activists, human rights advocates, journalists, and members of the former Afghan government were also invited to participate in the Vienna meeting.
The first Vienna meeting was held last year from September 15 to 17.
