Russia to remove IEA from banned list, RTA

KABUL: Russia is going to remove the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) from its banned list, Radio Television of Afghanistan (RTA) reported Tuesday. Quoting the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the RTA said that Russia’s decision was about recognizing the realities on the ground. “They are the real power. We are not indifferent to Afghanistan. And above all our allies in Central Asia are not indifferent,” the TV quoted Lavrov as saying. The move could further boost diplomacy between Russia and Afghanistan. According to the TV, Russia also invited the representatives of the Islamic Emirate to its flagship Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum. The St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) is an annual Russian business event for the economic sector, which has been held in St. Petersburg since 1997, and under the auspices of the Russian President since 2006. Each year, more than 10,000 people from over 120 different countries take part. The Forum brings together the chief executives of major Russian and international companies, heads of state, political leaders, prime ministers, deputy prime ministers, departmental ministers, and governors. The key purpose of the Forum is to provide practical solutions for businesses and governments, helping to overcome the geographic and information barriers between Russia and other countries. The forum was historically intended for Russia to attract foreign direct investment, discuss economic policy and project a global image that Russia was open for business after the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
