What's Afghanistan's future under the Taliban? | Conflict Zone

In an exclusive interview with DW’s Conflict Zone, former Afghan minister Hasina Safi criticized the international community for the “inconsiderate” and “very hasty” withdrawal from Afghanistan.

“They came together, they left together,” she said. “Now, where does Afghanistan stand?”

Safi also described to host Tim Sebastian the “uncertainty” and “horror” she felt during the Taliban takeover and what it means for her and her family to have fled Afghanistan and now live as refugees in London.

What would it take for her to consider going home?
