Russian ambassador on increasing threat of terrorism in Kashmir and Russia

Russian ambassador

Keeping in mind the constantly increasing risk of terrorism in Kashmir (India) and Russia from Taliban-ruled Afghanistan, Russian ambassador, Nikolay Kudashev gave a statement on Monday in which he mentioned that both India and Russia have “common concerns” that Afghanistan should not be used to spread terrorism.
Kudashev informed a news agency on the sidelines of an event at the Russian embassy “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 Russia and China had last month abstained from voting on a UNSC resolution on Afghanistan saying that it didn’t name terror groups like ISIS and ETIM.

Kudashev said that there was ample scope for cooperation between India and Russia on Afghanistan and both sides have been in regular touch with each other.

“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,”  said Kudashev. He further added that recognition for the government was not an immediate area of focus.

When the Russian
Ambassador was questioned  about Pakistan’s support to terrorist groups which are  operating in Afghanistan, he clearly said, Russia expects Pakistan to be among the countries that would like to see predictability and a secure environment in Afghanistan.

Kudashev elaborated that tackling the threat of terror had been a matter of continued dialogue between Russia and India under multiple frameworks, including the bilateral mechanism of the counter-terror working group.

Nikolay Kudashev concluded by giving his his final statement as, “Counter-terrorism is part of each and every bilateral meeting. Rest assured we know about this danger and we are most willing to cooperate to deal with it,”.
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”.
