Russia Seeks Cooperation with US on Afghanistan Peace Front

Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov said at the Stimson Center in Washington, DC that it is important for the United States and Russia to cooperate on the settlement issue in Afghanistan. “Afghanistan, it’s really important for us to cooperate together,” Antonov said on Monday.


This comes as US-Taliban talks are on in Doha, with the US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad describing the talks as “productive”.

The previous round of the US-Taliban talks in January resulted in a framework for a future agreement under which the radical movement is ready to guarantee it will not harbor al-Qaeda terrorists (banned in Russia) in Afghanistan in return for ending US military presence in the country.
