News Daily Digital Desk: The Taliban government of Afghanistan has signed a historic trade agreement with Russia. Taliban signed an agreement to buy petrol, diesel, natural gas and wheat from Russia. Afghanistan’s Commerce and Industry Minister Haji Nooruddin Azizi confirmed this to Reuters. He said that Russia has promised to provide oil, gas and wheat at the cheapest price of the world market to the Taliban government.

After the Taliban occupation, the entire Afghanistan fell into a terrible financial crisis. The country came under the grip of multiple sanctions due to the rise of the militant government. Many countries have not yet recognized it. Among them is Russia. However, after the capture of Kabul, Taliban leaders visited Moscow. Note that one of the few foreign embassies in Kabul, the Afghan capital, is that of Russia. Among them, Afghan Commerce Minister Azizi visited Moscow last month. After that, it became known about the Russia-Taliban big deal.
