Arrow Taliban claim Russia and China support them

Taliban claim Russia and China support them

Russia and China are supporting the Taliban, which seized Afghanistan on August 15, said official representative of the Islamist group Suhail Shaheen at a press conference in Kabul.

"The Taliban is the political and military force of Afghanistan. This is reality, and they (Russia and China) support this," Shaheen said.

He stressed that this is not financial support.

It is noteworthy that Russia is officially recognizes the Taliban as a terrorist group. This decision was made by the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation in 2003. This status did not prevent the Kremlin from actively cooperating with the Taliban all these years.

Taliban delegations have repeatedly visited Moscow and were received at the highest level.

Moscow has already expressed readiness to exclude Taliban from the list of terrorist organizations.

According to Russian experts, the fact that the Taliban seized power in Afghanistan does not play into the hands of Moscow. There is a risk that the Islamists will try to expand their influence on neighboring countries, which may turn into a new war for the Russian Federation.

Personal note: I wouldn't doubt that one bit. Anybody that fights against the US is supported by China and/or Russia.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
