Doha: The US on Tuesday (local time) expressed deep concern over allegations of human rights abuses in Afghanistan and asked the Taliban to take necessary action to protect the rights of Afghans.This came after US Special Representative for Afghanistan Thomas West led a senior interagency delegation to discuss Afghanistan situation with the Taliban in Doha.

During the discussion, Price also said that the US remains committed to ensure that sanctions against the Taliban do not limit the ability of Afghan civilians to receive humanitarian support from Washington.

"The United States remains committed to ensuring that US sanctions do not limit the ability of Afghan civilians to receive humanitarian support from the US government," Price said."The Department of the Treasury has issued general licenses to support the continued flow of humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan and other activities that support basic human needs," he added.The US delegation included representatives from the Department of State, the Department of the Treasury, the US Agency for International Development, and the intelligence community.
