The Taliban have demanded a new constitution for Afghanistan and it has promised an 'inclusive Islamic system' to rule the war-torn country. The Taliban demanded a rare meeting with senior Afghan officials on Tuesday in Russia. In this, former Afghan President Hamid Karzai and senior leaders also participated. However, the officials of the Kabul government were not included in this meeting.
Members of the Taliban held their manifesto in front of some powerful Afghan leaders in Moscow. This meeting took place in Moscow after a Taliban meeting held in Doha last week with American negotiators to end the ongoing war in Afghanistan for the last 17 years. Although the Doha and Moscow talks are different, the Kabul government was kept isolated in both of these meetings.
Sher Mohammed Abbas Sthanikjai, who led the Taliban delegation, said, "The Constitution of Kabul Government is illegal. It has been brought from the western countries and it hinders peace. It is disputed. We want an Islamic constitution. "
