Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his government has “no plans” to recognize the Taliban as the legitimate government of Afghanistan, hours after the opposition Conservative Party issued a statement making the same announcement.

Speaking to reporters on the third day of the federal election campaign, Trudeau reminded Canadians that 20 years ago, Canada also did not acknowledge the Taliban as a government when it came to power.

“We are working with our allies on what Canada as part of the international community can do to stabilize the situation, protect civilians and end the violence,” Trudeau said, adding that this includes taking leadership by bringing Afghans to safety in Canada, expressing particular concern. on the situation of women and girls.

The Conservative Party issued a statement on Monday evening blaming Trudeau for “abandoning” the Afghans and stating that a government led by party leader Erin O’Toole would not recognize the Taliban as the country’s government.

The statement stated: “The use of force by the Taliban is totally unacceptable and that is why today I announce that the conservative government will not recognize the Taliban as the legitimate government of Afghanistan.”
