Afghanistan is now under Taliban control. The Afghan crisis has had an impact on the whole world. All countries are making efforts for the safe return of their citizens from there. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin over the phone for about 45 minutes. The two heads of state held detailed talks on the situation in Afghanistan.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given information about this discussion by tweeting. “Exchanged detailed and useful views with my friend President Putin on the recent developments in Afghanistan,” he said. We also discussed issues on the bilateral agenda, including India-Russia cooperation against COVID-19. We agreed to continue close consultations on important issues.

Let us tell you that at this time the question of whether or not to recognize the Taliban’s government has come up in front of the world. Many countries have openly opposed it. At the same time, some countries have also announced its support. It was reported that the Taliban also held separate meetings with senior ministers of China and Pakistan.

Recently, the Russian ambassador to Afghanistan, Dmitry Zhirnov, praised the conduct of the Taliban. His approach was described as “nice, positive and business-like”. He said the radical Islamist group had made Kabul safer than previous authorities in the first 24 hours.

Speaking to Moscow’s Eko Moskvi radio station, Zhirnov had said, “The situation is peaceful and good and everything is calm in the city. The situation in Kabul now under the Taliban is better than in Ashraf Ghani.” At the same time, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s special representative on Afghanistan, Zamir Kabulov, said that Ghani’s escape from Kabul was shameful.
