Russia hails military action against Daesh in Afghanistan
The government of Afghanistan was the only genuine address for peace negotiations and the insurgent movement had no option but to accept that address, the diplomat said.
At a meeting with President Ashraf Ghani, Kabulov claimed the Taliban were struggling with different internal issues that caused differences within the militant movement.
According to Kabulov, Russian President Vladimir Putin has welcomed Afghan security forces’ operations to eradicate Islamic State (Daesh) fighters from eastern parts of the country.
A Russian delegation would soon meet Ministry of Finance officials on ways and means of boosting economic cooperation between the two countries. Russian firms would invest in Afghanistan’s housing sector, he promised.
