KABUL (Pajhwok): The West and regional countries are at odds on dealing with the current situation in Afghanistan, says Russia.

The latest UN-convened meeting on Afghanistan in Doha earlier in the month failed to produce concrete results, claimed Russia’s special envoy.

Zamir Kabulov told TASS news Agency Moscow hailed UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ efforts to bring together the West and the regional nations on Afghanistan.

“We, the regionalists – Russia, China, Iran, Pakistan, Central Asian countries and India – believe that the priority should be to create inclusive leadership in Afghanistan…”

The creation of inclusive governance would help address other complicated issues like women’s rights in Afghanistan, the diplomat believed.

On the other hand, he alleged, Western countries expected the Taliban must to resolve legal issues first. “This is not a workable approach.”

The envoy accused the US and its allies of withholding more than $2.5 billion in humanitarian aid allocated to Afghanistan earlier.
