US allowing Daesh terrorists to infiltrate Afghanistan: Russian diplomat

February 9, 2018

MOSCOW: The Russian presidential envoy to Afghanistan says there are indications that the US military is allowing members of the Daesh terrorist group, who have suffered serious defeats in Syria and neighboring Iraq, to infiltrate Afghanistan.

“It’s noteworthy that the extremists themselves and weapons for them, according to numerous witness accounts, are often transferred to the territory of Afghanistan by helicopters without identifying insignia,” Zamir Kabulov said.

Kabulov added, “With the US and NATO fully controlling the skies over Afghanistan, there is every reason to believe they had a hand in that, or at least, did not hamper these flights, despite the fact that Washington and Brussels deny that.”

Last November, former Afghan President Hamid Karzai told Qatari al-Jazeera television news network that the US is colluding with Daesh in Afghanistan, and allowing the Takfiris to flourish in his conflict-stricken country.

“In my view, under the full [US] presence, surveillance, military, political, intelligence, Daesh has emerged. And for two years, the Afghan people came, cried loud about their suffering, of violations. Nothing was done,” Press TV quoted him as saying. NNI
