America running away from Afghanistan: now Russia has taken over the front- India’s eye too- With the withdrawal of American troops in Afghanistan, once again a bloody war has started in the country between the Taliban and the Afghan army. A counter-attack has begun between the Taliban and Afghan troops. After Iran, Russia has also intensified its efforts to stop this civil war. A delegation of the Afghan government and the Taliban has reached Moscow where talks will take place between the two sides. The interesting thing about this whole matter is that a day earlier, Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has also visited Russia.
The Taliban leaders are believed to have reached Russia to assure the Putin administration that if they come to power, Russia and its allies in Central Asia will not be threatened. The Russian Foreign Ministry said that Zamir Kabulov, Russia’s ambassador to Afghanistan, held talks with the Taliban delegation. The Russian ambassador has expressed concern over the escalation of violence and tensions in northern Afghanistan.
Taliban assures Russia of security
Kabulov asked the Taliban to stop themselves from spreading outside their country’s borders. The Russian Foreign Ministry said, ‘We have received assurances from the Taliban that they will not violate the borders of Central Asian countries. Also assures the security of foreign diplomats and their Consulate General in Afghanistan. This assurance of the Taliban came at a time when hundreds of Afghan soldiers had gone to the border of neighboring Tajikistan to escape the Taliban attack.
After this, Russia’s ally Tajikistan had deployed 20,000 of its reserve soldiers on the border. Russia also has a military base in Tajikistan. Russian officials fear that the arrival of the Taliban could increase instability in the countries of the former Soviet Union located in the northern region of Afghanistan. In view of this threat, now Russia has taken the front to bring reconciliation between the Taliban and the Afghan government.
