After peace talks between the US and Taliban negotiators stopped by president Trump, the Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson said in a statement that Moscow hopes these talks will resume as soon as possible.

In the context of the US administration’s decision to discontinue talks with the Taliban, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said recently in a statement that “Russia hope the current pause will not undermine the long-term efforts of the sides and the substantial progress achieved at the talks in Doha on a peace settlement in Afghanistan.”
“In this context we welcome the Taliban’s statement on its willingness to continue the dialogue with the United States. As before, we believe there is no alternative to a political and diplomatic approach to settling the crisis in Afghanistan,” she stressed.

“We are convinced that the complete end to foreign military presence is an inalienable condition of durable peace in Afghanistan,” she added.
It is worth mentioning that a Taliban delegation was in Moscow Friday, where they met with the Russian presidential envoy for Afghanistan Zamir Kabulov.
