DID Press: Russian special envoy for Afghanistan Zamir Kabulov says as long as the current Afghan officials are not recognized by the world, no ambassador can work in the Afghan embassy in Russia.
In an interview with Russian media outlet RTVI, Zamir Kabulov said that the current rule in Afghanistan is not inclusive.
“Officially, the officials of the current Afghan government are not recognized, which means that until they are, no ambassador can be present at the Afghan embassy in Russia, and this is the issue that Vladimir Putin, the Russian President, and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov have repeatedly addressed. Such action can be taken when the Taliban fulfill their initial pledge to establish an inclusive government made up of ethnic and political representatives,” Kabulov noted.
According to Kabulov, the security situation in Afghanistan has not changed and urged Russian citizens to avoid travel to Afghanistan.
“The security situation in Afghanistan is serious, therefore we advise our citizens to avoid traveling there. Numerous terrorist organizations are fighting against the ruling system in Afghanistan, and whether or not our countrymen go there, they may run into trouble,” the Russian special envoy said.
Kabulov also said that the current Afghan rule is interested in having Russian experts repair artillery and tanks there.
This comes as the Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said the security has been ensured accross Afghanistan and foreign citizens should not worry.
