Russia still maintains that no decision has been made on whether or not to recognize the Taliban (who are banned in Russia), according to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, because it is vital to see if they keep their promises.


On Tuesday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu declared that his country was not in a hurry to recognize the Taliban authority.

According to reports, the terrorist movement sent invites to Russia, China, Turkey, Iran, Qatar, and Pakistan to an event dedicated to the introduction of the new Afghan government.

“You know that no decisions have been made on the recognition of the Taliban,” Peskov told reporters.

“Most significantly, we’re still trying to figure out how the Taliban’s promises, or remarks, will translate into future actions.”
According to Cavusoglu, Turkey believes the new Afghan administration should bring together all political factions and include women.
“Will the Taliban be recognized by Turkey? Let us not rush into any decisions.

“A government should be constituted that is capable of overcoming the situation and preventing a civil war from escalating.

It is necessary to have a government that includes all political factions and population strata, including women.
Cavusoglu remarked on Turkey’s NTV broadcast network, “Global recognition of the Taliban needs the emergence of such a government.”

The minister noted that all members of the new Afghan government that were presented to the world are in fact representatives of the Taliban.

“We are not going to form a government for them, but we communicate our ideas to the Taliban.“We shall see and take it from there; we do not have a clear position on this issue yet,” Cavusoglu added.
