Iran’s foreign ministry said that an Afghan government delegation met with Taliban leaders in the capital Tehran on Wednesday. This meeting comes at a time when Taliban terrorists are moving very fast towards the Afghan capital Kabul, carrying out horrific attacks after the withdrawal of American troops. The Taliban has now launched a vigorous attack on Kalat-e-Nav, the capital of Baghghis province, for the first time.
Iran’s Foreign Minister Javed Zarif, opening this conversation in Tehran, welcomed the withdrawal of his enemy American troops. Zarif warned that today the people and leaders of Afghanistan must take difficult decisions for the future of their country. In this dialogue, Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai, the chief negotiator on behalf of the Taliban, is talking.
On the other hand, former Vice President Younis is involved in legal negotiations on behalf of the Afghan government. Meanwhile, Afghan government officials have vowed that they will survive by snatching back the districts lost to the Taliban. Thousands of commandos have been deployed for counter-insurgency operations in the northern region after about a thousand government soldiers fled to Tajikistan. Now the Taliban has captured 10% of the districts of Afghanistan.
Consulates closed due to Taliban victory
According to information and reports received from the authorities, some countries have closed their consulates located in that area in view of the victory for the Taliban in the areas of northern Afghanistan. At the same time, reserve troops in Tajikistan are being called for security and security along the southern border. According to reports coming from Tajikistan, about 1000 Afghan soldiers have crossed the border and fled to Tajikistan in view of the advance of Taliban forces.
A statement issued by the Tajikistan government said on Monday that President Emomali Rakhmon has ordered the dispatch of 20,000 reserve troops to further strengthen the border with Afghanistan. The exodus of the Afghan army comes after the Taliban captured most of the districts in northeastern Badakhshan province. Several districts laid down their arms without a fight, while hundreds of soldiers from the Afghan National Security and Defense Forces crossed the border to protect the province’s northern border with Tajikistan. Turkish and Russian consulates in Mazar-i-Sharif, the capital of northern Balkh province and fourth largest city in Afghanistan, are reported to be closed.
