LONDON - British Foreign Secretary David Miliband has said it would be a stretch for Taliban chief Mullah Muhammad Omar to say that he's laid down his arms and he wants to play by the constitutional role, not least the blood that's already on his hands. "The important point though is that we are absolutely clear that those Taliban, who are willing to renounce violence and willing to abide by the Afghan Constitution, should be in politics. They should not be waving their arms around," Miliband said in an interview to the BBC on Friday. On the British foreign policy, Miliband said: "We have said for many years that we should reconcile is the word that's often used, we should engage those Taliban who are willing to play by the constitutional role in Afghanistan. "And we know what a difference those people are making whether they're troops or diplomats or aid workers and I think this is a really important point because you started with the Obama Administration. They are going to be committed, instinctive multilateralists, but for multilateralism it takes two to tango and Joe Biden was very clear. The good news is the Americans want to talk to you and work with you other countries. Bad news, in his words, you're going to have step up." He said after the recent deadly bombings in Kabul it is very important that "we recognise the challenge that's being put to the Afghan Government and to the international community. And it's important that we respond. Forty countries are supporting the sovereign government of Afghanistan and the international community has to do a better job to support them and the Afghan people," he added. About Palestine, the British Foreign Secretary said: "The truth is that the Gaza war was a symptom of very large political failure by all of us. Because what's peculiar about the Middle East conflict is that there's a vast consensus about the solution, about the borders of a Palestinian state being more or less the 1967 borders, about Jerusalem being the capital of both Palestine and Israel, about a fair compensation for refugees. What we are missing and, and that consensus combines not just President Abbas, but the current Israeli Prime Minister, and large swathes of Israeli and Palestinian opinion never mind almost unanimity in the international community," he added. "What we don't have is an effective process to deliver that two-state solution. And what I've been working on is with many, many in the Arab world to recognise that in the end normalisation of relations between the Arab world and Israel is critical in return for the development of a Palestinian state. That is the Arab Peace Initiative's offer and that's why we think it's so important that that is built on." Miliband further said the great lesson of the Clinton and Bush years in respect of the Middle East is that they have to engage from day one and what has the Obama Administration done? It's engaged from day one. So we have got a fighting chance and we've got to make the most of it because this is a world that needs a revived multilateralism. It needs an engaged United States, but it needs the rest of us, not just in Europe, Russia and China and elsewhere, to step up as well and that's what we're determined to work for." Talking on the British foreign policy, David Miliband said: "America is the game changer in international relations and I think the Obama Administration is instinctive multilateralists. And so the opportunity is to make multilateralism work. We're in the middle of an economic crisis, but we also have a major responsibility which is in all the key spheres of foreign policy, be it the Middle East peace process, be it Afghanistan, Pakistan, be it climate change. We have international institutions that are not yet adequate to the tasks that they have and I think what the Obama Administration brings is a thorough going commitment to make those institutions work," he added. Responding to a question regarding ban on the entry of the Director of the controversial film "Fitna" and Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders, Miliband said: "The British Home Secretary made a decision on an individual case as she is required to do."
