Lavrov: CSTO Members Seek Dialogue With Afghan Interim Afghan Govt

Sergey Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Minister, told reporters after the meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Collective Security Treaty Organization in Kazakhstan that the member countries of this organization are seeking meaningful dialogue with the interim Afghan government.

Lavrov added in this press conference that they support a more stable, continuous, and fundamental dialogue aimed at implementing real projects with the interim Afghan government.

However, Lavrov emphasized that threats from Afghan soil still persist.

The Russian Foreign Minister said: "In general, we support establishing a more stable, continuous, and fundamental dialogue aimed at implementing real projects with the Taliban government, which in fact holds the reins of the country. This was the majority opinion during the discussions I am sharing with you today. The Taliban government is fighting terrorist groups, and we consider assisting this fight essential."

Although the Islamic Emirate has not commented on these countries' desire for meaningful dialogue, it has dismissed concerns about threats from Afghan soil as baseless.

Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate, told TOLOnews that Afghanistan has become much safer and more stable than before.

Mujahid said: "Afghanistan has become much safer and more stable than before, and the phenomenon of Daesh, which was previously present here, is on the verge of annihilation. Thirdly, no unauthorized foreign groups are present here, nor are they allowed to operate. Therefore, expressing concern is not justified."

Salim Paigir, a military affairs expert, answered the question: "The main reason for Russia's and its neighbors' concerns is that major countries like the United States and other Western countries do not train terrorist groups from Afghan soil."

The meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, attended by the foreign ministers of Russia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, and Belarus, was held on Friday, June 21, in the city of Almaty, Kazakhstan.
