During this visit, Russia emphasized resuming the peace talks. A senior leader of the Taliban’s political office in Doha said that the purpose of the visit was not to resume talks with U.S. but to assess the Regional Cooperation to force U.S. troops to leave Afghanistan.

Taliban leader said that the timing of visiting crucial countries was such when an agreement was near.

After visiting Russia, the Taliban will meet leaders of China, Iran, and other central Asian states.
