The Russian government is considering removing the Taliban from its list of terrorist organizations.

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday that Russian authorities were considering the decision in order to facilitate greater communication.

“This is a country that is next to us, and one way or another we communicate with them,” Peskov told the press, according to Reuters.

The veteran Kremlin communications expert told journalists that because the Taliban tains a firm grip on Afghanistan, they must be treated as legitimate for international dialogue.

“We need to resolve pressing issues, this also requires dialogue, so in this regard we communicate with them like practically everyone else – they are the de facto authority in Afghanistan,” Peskov said, according to the report.

The “pressing issues” alluded to by Peskov most likely refer to a recent terror attack that killed over a hundred people in the national capital.

An Afghanistan-based affiliate of the terrorist group Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack that killed 137 people and wounded 180 others. 

The Islamic State in Khorasan Province (ISIS-K) is one of the few reing branches of ISIS that is still an active international security threat.
