Taliban Calls For Peace In Russia-Ukraine Conflict

The Taliban-controlled government of Afghanistan called for “restraint from both parties” Friday as Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine heightened concern for civilian casualties.

Afghanistan is closely monitoring the situation in Ukraine and expresses concern about real possibility of civilian casualties,” the Taliban said in a statement released by spokesperson Abdul Qahar Balkhi. “The Islamic Emirate calls for restraint by both parties. All sides need to desist from taking positions that could intensify violence.”

The Taliban urged Russia and Ukraine to “resolve the crisis through dialogue and peaceful means,” adding that Afghanistan would remain “in line with its foreign policy of neutrality.”

“The Islamic Emirate also calls on parties to the conflict to pay attention to safeguarding the lives of Afghan students and migrants in Ukraine,” the statement added.

The current Afghan government has not been recognized by Russia or Ukraine, according to The Guardian. The United Nations disclosed in January it had “credible allegations” of the Taliban killing over 100 former Afghanistan government officials, security forces and others who worked with coalition forces since President Joe Biden withdrew U.S. troops from the country in August.

Biden announced Tuesday a suite of new sanctions against Russia for invading Ukraine that include limiting technology exports to Russia, as well as sanctions against four banks and “Russian elites” with close ties to the Kremlin.

“Today, I’m authorizing additional strong sanctions and new limitations on what can be exported to Russia. This is gonna impose severe cost on the Russian economy, both immediately and over time,” said Biden. “We have purposely designed these sanctions to maximize a long-term impact on Russia and to minimize the impact of the United States and our allies. I want to be clear: The United States is not doing this alone.”

  1. The TALIBAN ASKING FOR PEACE??? SMH!!!! NO YOU ARE AFRAID THAT PUTIN WILL LET LOOSE HIS NUKES AND IT WILL DESTROY YOU AND YOUR TERRORIST COUNTRIES!!!

    • Foolish reply. The Taliban were our allies since 1979, when the CIA started its secret war against the USSR in Afghanistan. The Taliban are about the most honest government in the whole world, and were NEVER involved in terrorism like the US is constantly. Terrorism is using drone to assassinate, the Highway of Death, the war crime of “Shock and Awe” against civilian targets, etc. The Taliban never like Osama bin Laden, arrested him several time, and it was the US who insisted he be freed. You need to do more actual research instead of being fooled by false headlines.

      • All you say is true but I find it difficult to in any way admire a group that would bury a woman up to her neck and then destroy her head with rocks. The adage “there is good and bad in everything,” is perhaps fitting here.

  2. An old Hollywood movie titled “Charlie Wilson’s War” starring Julia Roberts depicts the involvement of the U.S. military & special troops in “engaging” in combat over GEOPOLITICAL agendas whereby the current “dictator occupant” of a certain foreign region possessing specific “interests/commodities” doesn’t comply with the demands of the U.S. State Department’s wishes. ITS ALL A BATTLE OVER WHO OBTAINS WHAT THRU WAR OR DIPLOMACY. DIPLOMACY HAS BEEN ON THE LOSING END FOR DECADES BECAUSE “WARS” EQUATE TO MEGA BUCKS FOR THE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX AND THOSE … INVESTED IN THE BUSINESSES OF THE MIC.! MONEY ALWAYS WINS.
