Taliban going in 'wrong direction': German foreign minister

STORY: "Our influence on what happens inside Afghanistan is very limited. It depends on the Taliban making rational choices in their own economic interest, and that is not what they are doing right now," Baerbock said during a joint news conference with her Pakistani counterpart, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

Baerbock, on a visit to Islamabad, also warned of a humanitarian disaster brewing in Afghanistan, adding that it was not the Afghan people's fault that their government was overthrown by the Taliban.

Baerbock added that Germany and Pakistan have restructured their system for bringing Afghan refugees to Germany via Pakistan to make it faster and that over 14,000 Afghans who are particularly at risk have been able to travel to Germany over the past months.
