Zamir Kabulov, Russia’s Special Representative for Afghanistan, states that the process of removing the Taliban from Russia’s list of terrorist groups is progressing well. Kabulov mentioned in an interview that efforts towards this goal are continuing.

In an interview with TASS news agency, Kabulov responded to queries about the timeline for the Taliban’s removal from the terrorist list, stating, “It will happen when all stages are completed. The process is still ongoing.”

Previously, Zamir Kabulov had informed President Vladimir Putin that the ministries of foreign affairs and justice had indicated the possibility of removing the Taliban from the list of banned organizations.

Sergey Lavrov, Russia’s Foreign Minister, announced that Russia is removing the Taliban from its list of terrorist organizations.

After the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit, President Vladimir Putin affirmed that the Taliban controls power in Afghanistan and is “certainly our ally in the fight against terrorism.”

    Critics of the Taliban, however, have warned that removing the Taliban from Russia’s list of terrorist groups could embolden terrorism and extremism in Central Asia and beyond.

    Meanwhile, they also argue that removing the Taliban from Russia’s list of terrorist organizations could send a dangerous message, potentially legitimizing a group known for its history of human rights abuses and violent tactics.

    They express concerns that such a move could undermine international efforts to hold the Taliban accountable for their actions in Afghanistan.

    Despite Russia’s diplomatic maneuvers, the international consensus remains divided on the Taliban’s status, reflecting ongoing debates about the group’s political legitimacy versus its past and current actions.

    As Afghanistan navigates through a fragile political transition, the global community continues to grapple with how best to engage with and address the complex challenges posed by the Taliban’s rule.
