Security Council: Russia never cooperated with Taliban
The Kremlin has never cooperated with the Taliban movement prohibited in the Russian Federation, Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev said, NEWS.ru reports.
If you put everything in its place, the US was at the forefront of the Taliban, he noted.
He noted that Washington spent billions of dollars in the 1980s to support Afghan mujahideen fighters, who became ‘the backbone of terrorist forces not only in Afghanistan but throughout the region.’
NEWS.ru earlier reported that White House National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien said that Russia would have to answer if information about Moscow’s collusion with the Taliban was confirmed.
