Kazakhstan takes Taliban off terrorist list

Astana, Jun 3 (Prensa Latina) Kazakh President Kasym Zhomart Tokayev said that his country removed the Taliban regime from the terrorist list to develop economic cooperation with Afghanistan.

Kazakhstan understood that it is necessary to look for variants of rapprochement and cooperation with Afghanistan, which seems to be interested in developing the country, Tokayev said during a meeting with the chairmen of the parliaments of the CSTO countries.

One of the strategic tasks at the present stage is to actively involve Afghanistan in interregional ties, Tokayev stated.

Pointing out the importance of a coordinated position of the CSTO countries on this issue, the Kazakh leader called for support for the country’s initiative to establish the UN Regional Center for Sustainable Development Goals for Central Asia and Afghanistan in Almaty.
