KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Talibaninfo-icon say Russia, China and Iran support their position about their negotiations with the US.

Suhail Shaheen, Taliban’s spokesman for their political office in Qatar, during a trip to China, said they traveled to Russia on their invitation before traveling to China and they had productive discussions with officials of these countries.

“These trips are very important and we share our position with officials of these countries, give them explanation and inform them about the facts happened in recent past,” he said.

“We want to gain support of these countries by traveling there and we did so in our recent trips,” he said.

Representatives of these countries accepted that the agreement between the Taliban and the US was a good foundation for resolving the Afghan conflict peacefully, Shahin said.

Two weeks back, US president Donald Trump cancelled talks with the Taliban.

Shahin said that their delegation led by Mullahinfo-icon Abdul Ghani Bradar met with Russian representatives in Beijing and discussed with them recent developments about the Afghan peace process.

He added the Taliban exchanged views over the cancelled talks with Chinese representatives.

Mullah Bradar during his meeting with Chinese representatives said that they followed negotiations and reached a comprehensive agreement, but the US president did not remain commitment to his promise, he said.

“If Trump violates his promises and statements, then he is responsible for all the bloodshed and destruction in Afghanistaninfo-icon,” Bradar was quoted as saying.
