The Taliban have appreciated Russian President Vladimir Putin's statements on the prospect of removing the outfit from the terror list. At a meeting of the International Valdai Club, Putin stated that the Taliban movement might be removed from the list of terrorist organisations. However, according to Russian news agency TASS, he also stated that this must take place at the United Nations level. According to Abdul Qahar Balkhi, the spokesperson for the Afghan Foreign Ministry in the country's interim government, "the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan welcomes remarks by President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, regarding removal of names of IEA leaders from the blacklist."

"As the chapter of war comes to a close, global countries must make a constructive shift in their relationship with and approach to Afghanistan. We desire healthy ties with the world community based on the reciprocity principle," the Taliban's spokesman tweeted about it.

However, the international community has made it plain that the Taliban must deliver on their promises before they would be recognised.
