MoFA Welcomes Remarks by Spokesperson of Russian Foreign Ministry
KABUL – Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan commends the goodwill of the Russian Federation for a peaceful resolution of Afghanistan’s crisis through constructive peace negotiations.
Although not a direct party to the Doha Peace Agreement, the Government of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan has fulfilled all obligations, including the release of more than 6000 Taliban prisoners.
The government of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan has always emphasized peaceful settlement of conflict and is committed to meaningful peace talks leading to a comprehensive ceasefire and lasting peace in Afghanistan.
However, as the withdrawal of international troops from Afghanistan almost completed, the Taliban have intensified their attacks.
While appreciating regional and international support to our gains over the last two decades under the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, we call for establishment of an international committee to monitor the implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution 2513.
The monitoring of the committee will clearly affirm that the Taliban, while not fulfilling their commitments to peace, have escalated violence to a level that even threatens the security and stability of the region.
