Comment by the Information and Press Department on statements by the President of Afghanistan

Wednesday, 25 October 2017 10:17

We have taken note of reports in some Afghan media of statements regarding Russia’s “support” for the Taliban movement by President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai during his recent trip to Paktia Province.

We consider unacceptable such statements by the head of state of friendly Afghanistan. We recall that Afghan officials have confirmed at different levels that such accusations against Moscow are groundless.

On the contrary, Moscow is rendering multiple forms of assistance to Kabul, including help in consolidating the combat capabilities of its national security forces, and is actively facilitating inter-Afghan dialogue with a view to establishing peace and stability in that country as soon as possible.

We urge Afghan leaders not to follow along with the anti-Russian hysteria fanned by some Western media.
