Russia’s special envoy for Afghanistan, Zamir Kabulov, says the United States has asked Russia, China and Pakistan to cooperate with Washington in the Afghan peace.

 

Zamir Kabulov told a German media outlet that the United States was seeking the cooperation of regional countries following the failure of Washington’s peace efforts.

“The United States has asked Russia, China, and Pakistan for cooperation in the Afghan peace and we will make an effort that peace efforts produce a result,” he added.

The Russian diplomat believes that that the key to peace in Kabul is if there is a meaningful negotiation between the Afghan government and the Taliban.

Kabulov stressed that the current Doha talks are just contacts between the two sides not talks on a common agenda.

The Russian top diplomat also stated that the Afghan war has deep roots and added that no power would soon be able to end it soon.

In the meantime, there are growing concerns in Kabul about the intensification of fighting.

Speaking at a ceremony, the Chairman of the High Council for National Reconciliation (HCNR), Abdullah Abdullah, criticized the lack of internal preparations for the withdrawal of NATO troops, saying that this has put Afghanistan in an exceptional situation.

He also said that the Taliban had taken advantage of the withdrawal of foreign forces and intensified the fighting.

Head of the Independent Human Rights Commission of Afghanistan (IHRC), also said there had been no change in the Taliban’s position on accepting the ceasefire. she reiterated the urgent need for a truce in the country.

The escalation of fighting has sidelined the Doha process to some extent; a process that has been going on for almost ten months, but has not been able to reduce the level of fighting in the country.
