CGTN published this video item, entitled “U.S. would not join Russia-organized talks due to ‘logistical reasons'” – below is their description.

The United States said it would not join Russia-organized international talks on Afghanistan due to logistical reasons. Tuesday’s talks saw China and Pakistan present, to discuss the future over Afghanistan’s “changing situation”. When asked if the U.S. would join future rounds of talks on the war-torn country, a State Department spokesperson gave a positive response, citing the Moscow talks as “effective” in the past, but it would be “logistically difficult” to take part this week. After the collapse of the previous Afghan government, the U.S. and its allies are seeking to engage with the Taliban government without granting legitimacy.
