Russia’s foreign minister, representatives of the Taliban and Afghan politicians met on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Russian-Afghan relations. Taliban’s representatives, on the sidelines of the meeting, commented on the progress of dialogue with Washington, and said that a 19-year long war can’t be ended with one or two rounds of talks.
