In the Afghan capital, Kabul, two days of talks between China, Russia and Pakistan with representatives of the “Taliban” government concluded.
In a statement, the Russian Foreign Ministry said that Zamir Kabulov, Russia’s envoy, Muhammad Sadiq, Pakistan’s envoy, and Yue Xiaolong, China’s envoy to Afghanistan, held talks in Kabul, at the invitation of the “Taliban.”
The ministry added that the Acting Prime Minister of the Taliban Interim Government, Mullah Muhammad Hassan Akhund, and the Acting Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Finance, Amir Khan Muttaqi and Mullah Hidayatullah Al-Badri, discussed with the envoys the latest developments in Afghanistan.
The envoys also met with former Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Abdullah Abdullah, former head of the National Reconciliation Council.
The envoys stressed the need to establish friendly relations with foreign countries and Afghanistan’s neighbors, in addition to the comprehensiveness of the Afghan government to ensure the country’s territorial integrity and respect for human rights, according to the statement.
The statement indicated that the parties “agreed to continue constructive talks, in the future, in order to establish regional peace, prosperity and stability.”
In mid-August, the Taliban managed to take control of Afghanistan, coinciding with the completion of the US withdrawal from the country at the end of the same month.
In 2001, an international military coalition led by Washington overthrew the rule of the “Taliban”, because it was linked at the time to the “Al-Qaeda” organization, which adopted attacks in the United States, in September of that year.
