MOSCOW, March 31. /TASS/. The international community should actively cooperate with the new government of Afghanistan, encouraging moves towards its recognition by all UN participants, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting with his Afghan counterpart Amir Khan Muttaqi, who was appointed by the Taliban (banned in Russia).
"We are convinced that the international community should actively cooperate with Afghanistan’s new government, encouraging steps aimed at its official recognition by the UN and all its participants," Lavrov noted.
He added that in this sense, inclusion should be a key element in Afghanistan’s government, not only at the ethno-confessional level, but also in the involvement of other political forces. Lavrov also highlighted the priority of the humanitarian component.
