Moscow Seeks to Form Regional Group of Nations to Influence Kabul

The Russian special envoy for Afghanistan, Zamir Kabulov, said that Moscow has proposed the creation of a new regional approach for Afghanistan.

In an interview with THE WEEK magazine, Kabulov said that this format will be like the "G5" format in which the countries of India, Pakistan, Iran, China and Russia will participate.

“In order to build a so-called regional approach, we want to build a core format, like a G5 with India, Pakistan, Iran, China and Russia. We believe that it can be an engine for not only building regional consensus, but also for doing something in order to implement this consensus and let the current rulers of Afghanistan know that they should listen to us,” Kabulov added.

Kabulov added that Moscow is trying to create this approach and China has supported it.

The Russian special envoy for Afghanistan also noted that Russia does not want to interfere in the internal affairs of Afghanistan, but it cannot hide its disillusionment with the way the current government is handling the situation.

“We care about ordinary Afghans as they suffer the most. We, of course, try not to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries. But we cannot hide our disillusionment with how the Taliban is handling the situation,” Russian envoy added.

Kabul supports any action that may improve commerce, the economy, and ties with Afghanistan, said Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate.

"Any move that will help develop economic and commercial relations with the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and its people is a good move,” Karimi said.

Meanwhile, some political analysts consider the development of a new framework for Afghanistan as an effort to safeguard the regional interests of these nations.

"Any sort of format needs to contain two crucial components. First of all, it needs to consider the various realities of Afghanistan. And secondly, Afghanistan shouldn't be used as a means of competition between the present powers,” said Sayed Jawad Sajadi, a political analyst.

"If Afghanistan is involved in it and they honestly endeavor to keep the region secure, the better for Afghanistan and the region,” said Janat Fahim Chakari, another political analyst.
