    NEW YORK CITY, The United States of America - Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday at a meeting of the UN Security Council devoted to security in Afghanistan and Central Asia that jihadists who did not die in Syria are fleeing to Central Asia, including northern Afghanistan, to continue their militancy. 

    "Northern Afghanistan is turning into a main base for international terrorism with the Afghan wing of the Islamic State in the lead," he said. 

    "It is forming a springboard for heinous designs in the spirit of the notorious ideology of a caliphate," he continued.

    He then went onto highlight the problem of drug production in Afghanistan.

    "Last year saw an unprecedented growth in Afghan drug production," he said.

    "Prompt measures are required to curb this threat, which fuels international terrorism, undermines countries’ stability, the health of the younger generation, provokes crime and corruption," Russia’s top diplomat stressed.
