NEW DELHI: The imminent terrorism threat seems to be looming over Russia and Kashmir after the Taliban took over Afghanistan. Russian ambassador to India Nikolay
Kudashev said that India and Russia had “common concerns” that Afghanistan should not be used to spread terrorism.
“As far as the phenomena of terror are concerned, we do share our concerns with India. There is a danger of terror being spread to the Russian territory and the territory of Kashmir. This is a matter of common concern,” Kudashev asserted.
Russia and China had last month abstained from voting on a UNSC resolution on Afghanistan.
The diplomat also said that 3 of countries could easily come to a common ground of understanding if they communicated with each other regularly.
“Both India and Russia are concerned about the situation in Afghanistan. We want an inclusive government. We want that the Afghan soil should not be a source of terror for other countries in the region. We are for an inclusive government in Afghanistan that can ensure sustainable development in the war-torn country. The Afghan people deserve peace, stability, and sustainable development just as any other nation in the world,” Kudashev said.
