Heiko Maas: One-way talks with the Taliban

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said today that “there is absolutely no alternative” to talks with the Taliban, the Islamist movement that has seized power in Afghanistan.

According to Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, the potential impact of developments in Afghanistan on the number of refugees increases the chances of reforming the EU asylum policy.

In recent years, all efforts to reform European asylum and immigration policy have repeatedly failed. The main point of contention has always been the question of whether those seeking protection in crisis situations should be allocated to the Member States through quotas.
