Russian envoy certain about friendly relations with new Afghan leadership
Russia’s special presidential representative for Afghanistan, director of the Foreign Ministry’s Second Asian Department Zamir Kabulov, said on Sunday he hoped for establishing friendly relations between Moscow and Afghanistan’s new leadership.
"This is not only a hope of mine. I am certain about this. We will be building relations with reliance on the material that we have accumulated over years," Kabulov told TASS.
The radical movement Taliban (outlawed in Russia), as follows from reports by the TV broadcaster Al Arabiya, entered Kabul Sunday evening without armed clashes and has been establishing control of the government offices vacated by the Afghan forces. President Ashraf Ghani has left the country. The Taliban says control of the city will be established within hours.
