Militants of the radical Taliban movement (banned on the territory of the Russian Federation) attacked a checkpoint in the Badakhshan province in northern Afghanistan. As a result, nine police officers were killed and two more were injured.

This is reported by the local TV channel 1TV on its Twitter, referring to the message from the government.

It's worth reminding that in March, the Taliban* threatened to reopen hostilities against foreign troops in Afghanistan if they did not leave the country by May 1. American President Joe Biden announced the withdrawal of United States troops from Afghanistan in a situation where the command did not recommend doing so. Earlier, several generals tried to convince Biden to leave a military contingent in the country, and in parallel with this, agree on a peace agreement. Biden said the troops would remain in Kabul after 9/11.

The Kremlin believes that the return of the Taliban to power is only a matter of time. The United States, apparently, adheres to the same point of view. Several countries with interests in Afghanistan - the United States, Russia, Pakistan, Iran and more recently also China - have organized international conferences with the Taliban, which discussed the possibility of creating an interim coalition government with the participation of all ethno-religious communities, provincial leaders and military leaders. formations of the country. The goal is to prevent a civil war after the withdrawal of American troops in September 2021.
