Trump’s former aide’s proposal for Washington’s cooperation with the Taliban

Trump’s former aide’s proposal for Washington’s cooperation with the Taliban

Christopher Costa, a former aide to Donald Trump, the former President of the United States, described in an article that Washington’s cooperation with the Taliban is necessary but inconvenient for the defeat of ISIS in Afghanistan.

In this article, which was co-authored with Colin Clarke, Costa stated that the Taliban alone need the help of others to fight ISIS and other terrorist groups in Afghanistan.

He has suggested that Washington and its allies should grant concessions to the Taliban in the fight against ISIS through Qatar or Saudi Arabia.

He emphasized that after the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, the activities of ISIS and Al-Qaeda have increased and Washington does not have the appropriate intelligence to control these groups.

According to Costa, the Taliban have put a lot of pressure on ISIS in Afghanistan, and this group has now moved towards increasing its attacks in other countries.

The hypothesis of America’s support for the resistance front has also been proposed by the former Trump aide as a way to fight the ISIS core in Afghanistan.

These analyzes have been presented while American officials have expressed their concern over the increase in ISIS threats in Afghanistan in recent weeks.
