MOSCOW, Russia – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his Pakistani counterpart Khawaja Muhammad Asif raised their “common concern” over the current developments in Afghanistan while speaking at a joint press conference in Moscow on Tuesday.
“The long-standing presence of the USA and NATO has not yielded peace and stability in Afghanistan,” Lavrov stated. “Unfortunately, [it has] not downgraded the terrorist threat.”
“We are very much concerned about what is going on in Afghanistan. We are very much concerned about the growth of the Islamic State’s influence over there,” the Russian diplomat added.
Talking about the current developments in Syria’s Afrin, where Turkish forces are currently in the midst of a combat operation in Kurdish-held areas, Lavrov said Moscow acknowledges Ankara’s “concerns with regard to what is going on in Syria”, but also stated there is worry over the presence of other external forces, particularly the US, who are “pursuing their own geopolitical short-sighted interests” in the country.
