Russia sharing information with Taliban against Daesh
A Russian diplomat said in an interview on Wednesday his country was sharing information with the Taliban against the IS.
In combating Daesh, Zamir Kabulov, Russia’s special representative to Afghanistan, said Moscow and Taliban had a commonality of interest.
The Interfax news agency quoted the senior envoy as saying: “Taliban interests objectively coincide with ours.
“I have said before that we have communication channels with the Taliban to exchange information,” he added.
Kabulov claimed both Afghan and Pakistani Taliban had refused recognising Daesh leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi as a caliph.
