Canada "has no plans" to recognise a Taliban government in Afghanistan, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says.
"They have taken over and replaced a duly elected democratic government by force," he told reporters.
The prime minister said the group remained a "recognised terrorist organisation" under Canadian law.
Canada did not recognise the Taliban when they were in control of Afghanistan 20 years ago, Trudeau said, adding that the focus was on getting people out of the country.
