German Chancellor Angela Merkel hoped for a dialogue with the Taliban, to allow those who are leaving the country to do so safely, according to whom “the Taliban have received more support than we would have hoped for” and “we should try to talk with them ”to ensure that Afghan citizens who are in danger“ can leave the country ”. To report it is the agency Tass. “I hope that inclusive structures can be found”, added the chancellor, to help the Afghan people, and “at the same time I hope that terrorism is no longer an international threat in the future”.

The Merkel-Putin meeting

The German leader today met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow. “I once again asked the president for Navalny’s release,” Merkel explained at a press conference, stressing that the dissident’s detention is “unacceptable”.

On Afghanistan, Putin said that “the Taliban now control most of the country, including Kabul, this is the reality and we must avoid the destruction of the Afghan state. We know the country very well, we know how counterproductive it is to impose other foreign models on Afghanistan, it never succeeds ”. “You cannot impose your lifestyle on other peoples, because they have their own traditions. This is the lesson to be learned from what happened in Afghanistan. From now on, the standard will be respect for differences, because democracy cannot be exported, whether one wants it or not ”.
