Taliban Delegation Arrives in Russia

A delegation from the Taliban office in Qatar has arrived in Russia to discuss the ongoing peace talks in Russia.

The delegation was lead by Mullah Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai and met with President Vladimir Putin’s Special Representative for Afghanistan Zamir Kabulov. 

“The Russian side spoke out in favour of launching substantive and constructive intra-Afghan talks as soon as possible so as to put an end to the bloody civil war and create an effective national government in Afghanistan,” said the delegation. 

Dr. Mohammad Naeem said Russia assured them of total cooperation in the establishment of peace in Afghanistan.

The Taliban’s Qatar office has also sent  Mullah Baradar two days ago to meet with Iranian authorities in Tehran, Iran to discuss similar matters.
