The special representative of Russia for Afghanistan has unequivocally declared that Moscow has no plans to recognize the Taliban formally.

Zamir Kabulov told the TASS news agency that Russia has repeatedly stated at all possible levels that there is no discussion about recognizing the Taliban.

He told TASS, “There is no progress, and this has been discussed at all possible levels.”

Russia is a member of the United Nations Security Council and has consistently emphasized that the Taliban must adhere to their commitments, including combating terrorist groups and forming an inclusive government.

Russia’s representative for Afghanistan also reported to TASS that Moscow and Washington are not engaged in any negotiations regarding Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, Kabulov said there will soon be another UN-mediated international meeting of special envoys on Afghanistan.

“We are planning a range of broad international events on Afghanistan. Our regional partners and we remember that UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres planned to gather special envoys, just as he did, you will remember, in Doha in the spring, after the presentation of a report from his special coordinator,” Kabulov said on Monday, cited by Tass.

“As far as I can see, such a report has been presented and distributed. We will have to study it thoroughly since he [the UN chief] said that after all the parties concerned analyze the report, he would like to bring everyone together somewhere to exchange views. Bearing this in mind, we are in no hurry. First, we will scrutinize this report; we have already begun, and then an invitation from New York will probably come,” he added.

The first conference on Afghanistan convened at the initiative of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in Doha on May 1 to 2, 2023.
