An informed source told Interfax about this , without specifying the purpose and program of the delegation’s visit.
Representatives of the Taliban arrived in Moscow against the backdrop of an offensive by their forces against government forces in Afghanistan. In Afghanistan, the Taliban stepped up fighting after the United States began to withdraw its troops from the country.
Servicemen of government forces, in particular, are retreating to the territory of Tajikistan, where the 201st Russian military base is located – Russia’s largest military facility outside its borders. On July 5, Russian President Vladimir Putin promised assistance to Tajikistan in connection with the aggravation on the border in Afghanistan.
