The Foreign Minister of Russia Sergei Lavrov has declared that his country is ready to help the United States and the Taliban overcome difficulties in implementing the Doha Peace Agreement.

“We salute the agreement, although we warn of the importance of involving neighbors more actively so that their interests can also be taken into account,” Lavrov said.

“We are not happy that the U.S.-Taliban agreements become bogged down. We see the reasons why this is happening and we are ready to help overcome these causes,” he added, explaining that an inclusive inter-Afghan dialogue is necessary.

On Feb. 29, the U.S. and the Taliban signed a peace agreement in Doha, which provides for negotiations between the insurgent movement and the Afghan government to implement a permanent and comprehensive ceasefire.
