KABUL: Russia’s special representative to Afghanistan Zamir Kabulov announced that his country will host Troika Plus on Afghanistan in January 2022 inviting the US, China, and Pakistan.
Earlier, Pakistan hosted Troika Plus concentrated on Afghanistan, and the Taliban authorities were also invited to the meeting.
It is still unclear whether the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan will be invited to the meeting.
Meanwhile, Russia’s special representative reacted to the new rules announced by the Taliban’s Ministry of promotion of virtue and prevention of vice and called it stupidity.
The ministry has recently announced that women without male relatives are not allowed to travel in the car for up to 45 miles.
Drivers are also instructed not to seat two female passengers in the front seat and totally avoid seating the women who do not observe Islamic hijab.
The restrictions come as the Taliban have not been recognized yet and their authorities are still blacklisted by the US and UN.
