“The G7 will meet next week at the level of foreign ministers to address the current situation in Afghanistan. It will also be attended by representatives from Russia, China, and other nations “He expressed himself.

Because these two countries “have a certain impact on Afghanistan,” Motegi emphasized the need of the Russian and Chinese delegations attending such a summit.

According to Motegi, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken will oversee the online dialogues, which will bring diplomats from more than 20 countries together. They might happen as early as September 8th, according to the Japanese Foreign Minister.

After the United States announced the withdrawal of its military soldiers from Afghanistan, the Taliban (which is illegal in Russia) launched a tremendous operation to reclaim authority.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani resigned and fled the country on August 15, and Taliban militants surged over Kabul with little resistance.

In Panjshir Province, led by Ahmad Massoud, the son of legendary guerilla commander Ahmad Shah Massoud, the forces opposing Taliban authority gave resistance (1953-2001). Former Vice President Amrullah Saleh named himself “caretaker president,” urging the country to rally behind him.

The Taliban was declared a terrorist group by Russia’s Supreme Court on February 14, 2003.
