President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday said France was holding preliminary discussions with the Taliban about the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan and the possible evacuation of more people at risk following the August 15 Taliban takeover.
Emmanuel Macron is so precise and reliable, perhaps even becoming predictable at the point, that you could almost set your watch by his movements. In less than 48 hours after the Islamic terror bombing at the Kabul airports that killed 13 American military and over 170 civilians, Emmanuel Macron is in Baghdad, Iraq, holding a Middle East summit and negotiating with the Taliban. Any wonder why he’s our #1 candidate for the biblical man of sin?
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:3,4 (KJB)
Think about it, the crisis in Afghanistan directly touches America, the UK, Germany, France and Italy, and yet who is the man on the scene leading the charge? Emmanuel Macron. Walkaway Joe Dividen is nowhere to be found. Macron hasn’t let me down not even once from the time we began calling him the man of sin until right here and now.
“And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.” John 13:27 (KJB)
France in ‘preliminary talks’ with Taliban over Afghan evacuations, says Emmanuel Macron
FROM FRANCE 24: “We are in the process of holding discussions, which are still fragile and provisional, with the Taliban regarding humanitarian evacuations to repatriate Afghan men and women at risk,” said Macron.
Evacuations are planned jointly with Qatar and may involve “airlift operations”, said Macron, adding that France had evacuated 2,834 people from Afghanistan since August 17. Qatar has good contacts with the Taliban since Doha hosts a Taliban political office that negotiated the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan. The disclosure came at news conference in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, where Macron attended a regional security summit aimed at easing tensions in the Middle East and emphasising Iraq’s role as a mediator.
“No matter what choices the Americans make, we will maintain our presence in Iraq to fight against terrorism,” said Macron. “We have the operational capacity to ensure this presence,” he said.
The meeting came as Iraq, long a casualty of jihadist militancy, also tries to establish itself as a mediator between Arab countries and Iran.
“We all know that we must not lower our guard, because Daesh (the Islamic State group) remains a threat, and I know that the fight against these terrorist groups is a priority of your government,” Macron said earlier after a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhemi.
Iraq and France are “key partners in the war against terrorism”, Kadhemi replied.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Jordan’s King Abdullah II flew in for the summit, also attended by the foreign ministers of regional foes Iran and Saudi Arabia. Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, Dubai’s ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, Kuwait’s Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khalid Al-Sabah and Turkey’s foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu also participated in the summit.
‘More urgent than ever’
Oil-rich Iraq has been caught for years in a delicate balancing act between its two main allies, Iran and the US. Iran exerts major clout in Iraq through allied armed groups within the Hashed al-Shaabi, a powerful state-sponsored paramilitary network. Iraq has been brokering talks since April between Saudi Arabia and Iran aimed at mending ties severed in 2016.
“It was really not easy to put the Saudis and Iranians in the same room,” a French diplomatic source said.
But an adviser to Kadhemi said that just the presence of the two foreign ministers together was itself a “success”. Macron aims to highlight France’s role in the region and its determination to press the fight against terrorism, his office said. The French president considers Iraq “essential” to stability in the troubled Middle East, it added.
The Baghdad conference “will make it possible to lay the framework for cooperation in the fight against terrorism,” Macron said. READ MORE
