Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that Moscow is considering removing the Taliban from the list of terrorist organizations.

Russia hosted a high-level Taliban delegation this week. Officials from China, Pakistan and eight other countries also took part in the talks.

A statement from the meeting said that "the new reality in Afghanistan, which is the rise of the Taliban, must be taken into account."

Russia has also called for the mobilization of international aid to support Afghanistan.

The Taliban seized power in Afghanistan in August.

The group is still considered a terrorist organization in Russia.

Putin said that Afghanistan should receive economic support, because according to him, stability in the war-torn country is in the interest of all its neighbors.

Washington has said it has no plans to release nearly $ 9 billion of US Central Bank reserves held in the United States.

The US has frozen them after the Taliban took power.

This, despite warnings from the United Nations that Afghanistan's economy is on the verge of collapse and that the country is facing a deep humanitarian crisis.21Media
