On November 6 and 8, 2018, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (the Taliban organization) issued two statements to clarify its stance on the multilateral Moscow conference being held on Friday, November 9, 2018. The Taliban and several countries – the U.S., Russia, China, Pakistan, Iran, India, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, and Turkmenistan – will attend the conference.
