‘This is a matter of course, they are directly responsible for the serious consequences of their long-standing presence in that country,’ Putin said, referring to the need for those nations to support the Islamic nation.
He also said that Moscow shares the intention to convene an international donor conference to provide humanitarian and economic assistance to Afghanistan under the auspices of the United Nations (UN).
The Russian head of state acknowledged that from their speeches at the meeting, all the CSTO and SCO member states share common approaches on how to deal with the situation in the Islamic country.
He was of the opinion that the best option for building a dialogue and reaching agreements with the new government in Kabul, formed by the Taliban movement, is through the extended troika of mediators (Russia, China, Pakistan and the United States) and stated that the work in that direction is already underway.
