Emomali Rahmon, President of Tajikistan, on Thursday said that the Taliban doesn’t want an inclusive government in Afghanistan, despite the promises they have made.
During the meeting of the heads of Central Asian states in Kyrgyzstan, Rahmon added that the Taliban implements an aggressive discriminatory policy against various ethnic groups in Afghanistan.
The Kyrgyzstan meeting is the fourth in a series of consultative meetings of the leaders of Central Asian countries. The first such summit was held in March 2018 in Kazakhstan. The second summit was held in November 2019 in Uzbekistan, and the third round of this summit was held in August 2021 in Turkmenistan.
Before the meeting was initiated, the five countries’ foreign ministries prepared the draft roadmap for the development of regional cooperation from 2022-2024.
The leaders of the Central Asian countries outlined that in 2022, cooperation and stability in the region is high on their agenda.
Most Central Asian countries are worried about the influence of extremists in the region considering the latest developments in Afghanistan under the Taliban.
