On Wednesday, Russia’s presidential envoy to Afghanistan Zamir Kabulov offered Moscow as a venue, where the next session of intra-afghan peace dialogue can take place.
During his address, he mentioned how the progress of the peace process had been rather slow throughout the past few weeks due to reluctance from Kabul, as well as, the Taliban office in Doha.
He emphasized the fact that both sides must show flexibility and the ability to cooperate to achieve peace through negotiation.
Zamir Kabulov has a history of having experienced diplomatic performance in the region of Afghanistan and Pakistan. He was ambassador to Afghanistan from the Russian Federation from May 2004 to September 2009.
Taliban office from Doha has visited Moscow several times for the past few years even though the Taliban are on Moscow’s terrorist list since 2003.
