Russia accepts credentials of first Taliban’s diplomat to Moscow

Foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov said that for interaction and relations with Afghanistan’s new government, Moscow has accepted the credential of the first diplomat introduced by de facto authorities in Kabul.

Sergey Lavrov made the remarks in China on Wednesday during a meeting of Foreign Ministers of Afghanistan’s neighboring countries adding the diplomat has entered Russia in February.

Lavrov who has also met Foreign Minister of Afghanistan Amir Khan Muttaqi said his country is worried about the spread of terrorism from central Asian countries.

“Plans and programs of ISIS and their supporters to destabilize central Asian countries and then Russia is quite concerning. Formation of Ansarullah Fraction and Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan on border sides of Afghanistan and Tajikistan are signs of threat.” Said Lavrov.

Though no country has yet recognized the Taliban, Russia is the world’s first power that accepts credentials of a diplomat of the Taliban.

Foreign Ministry of Afghanistan has not made comments about the issue yet.
