At the opening of the Moscow Consultative Meeting, Zamir Kabulov, Russia’s Special Envoy for Afghanistan, said that the crisis of transition of power in Afghanistan has remained unresolved.
Kabulov added that Russia is concerned about ISIS activities in northern Afghanistan.
Kabulov stressed that Russia has urged the United States and its allies to release the frozen assets of Afghanistan too. According to him, the US, and other countries’ efforts to establish a trust fund or print new Afghani banknotes are superficial.
The Taliban have not been invited to attend the Moscow consultative meeting.
Representatives of China, Pakistan, Iran, India, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, and Turkmenistan are participating in this meeting.
Delegations from Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey have also been invited as guests to the Moscow meeting.
