There are prospects for recognizing the Taliban government (banned in the Russian Federation), and Russia will not look back at the US and other countries in this matter. Zamir Kabulov, the Russian President's Special Representative for Afghanistan and Director of the Second Asian Department of the Foreign Ministry, said this.
According to him, the Taliban do not pose a threat to the Central Asian countries. "The Taliban movement itself, which currently rules Afghanistan, does not pose a threat to Central Asia. It has well-developed long-standing political and diplomatic ties, at least with Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan," Kabulov told Channel One Russia on Tuesday.
The Taliban understands Russia's concerns in Afghanistan, such as terrorism and drug trafficking, Kabulov said. He said terrorist groups in Afghanistan continue to be aided by the Anglo-Saxons, posing a threat to stability in Central Asia.
"They [terrorist groups] pose a real threat to stability in Central Asia, because they were initially sharpened by the Anglo-Saxons for this very purpose. And they continue to be secretly financed and assisted by the same Anglo-Saxons and some other accomplices in this process," Kabulov said.
