Price said the US has yet to decide on the issue, but “it is something that we are actively discussing with our partners, and thinking about here as well”.

“We are not ready to answer them today, especially because we have heard many statements from the Taliban. Some of it has been positive, some has been constructive, but ultimately what we’re looking for and what our international partners are looking for is work, not just talk.”

Price said, “With regard to any future diplomatic presence, any question of recognition, any question of assistance, what we are going to focus on – is follow up on what is said and action is not just talk. “
