The general explained the readiness of the United States to cooperate with Russia on Afghanistan

18
The special representative of the Russian president for Afghanistan, Zamir Kabulov (previously Russian ambassador to that country), today announced the US readiness to cooperate with the Russian Federation on an Afghan settlement. Such a statement actually sounds against the background of the announcement by US President Donald Trump about the impending withdrawal of about half of the US military contingent from Afghanistan. According to recent reports, the command of the US forces plans to leave in Afghanistan up to 2-x thousand soldiers and officers.


The general explained the readiness of the United States to cooperate with Russia on Afghanistan


In this connection, the question arises: is the US initiative on cooperation with Moscow on the issue of Afghan settlement a provocation — an attempt to drag Russia into the conflict?

His answer to this question gives Major General Mikhail Makaruk, a member of the Presidium of the All-Russian Organization Russian Officers.

According to Major General Mikhail Makaruk, in this case, most likely, the States are trying to take advantage of the Soviet experience, which consists in the withdrawal of military contingent from Afghanistan with minimal losses. Most recently - February 15 - Russia celebrated the 30 anniversary of the withdrawal of internationalist soldiers from Afghanistan.

Mikhail Makaruk:
In a number of areas, they (the Americans) believe that Russia (the USSR) has a lot to learn. But at the same time, they are probing what Moscow will pay attention to during consultations on this issue, because they, declaring a reduction in their military presence, do not want to leave a void. They do not want to leave a niche that the Russian side would fill.


According to the military expert, it is extremely important for Washington to know what steps Moscow is ready to take if the US contingent withdraws from Afghanistan.

Mikhail Makaruk also answered the question of under what conditions the Russian Federation is ready to cooperate with the United States on Afghanistan.

According to him, now we can only talk about one thing: if this proposed cooperation will have signs of parity, and not be any kind of pressure from Washington.

Major General Makaruk:
We have no other approach, including other areas of cooperation, including Venezuela, and cannot be. Reserved, with in-depth analysis and only on equal terms.

      Is the US initiative on cooperation with Moscow an attempt to drag Russia into the conflict

      Russia needs to be, well, very careful. Americans leave 2 thousand soldiers in Afghanistan. It is almost nothing. Only guarding a pair of airfields. It’s easier for us to negotiate with the Taliban, they will even destroy drug transplants.

    Well, who else is capable of this? US only. First, Russia, help get our star-striped asses out of Afghan shit, and then get sanctions for that.

      Here it would be the other way around: give target designation to spirits. That the withdrawal of the contingent did not seem to the Americans as honey.

        The Taliban themselves do a good job of this, since they forced the mattresses to interact with Russia in the search for options on how to ski properly, forgetting about their exclusivity.

    According to the military expert, it is extremely important for Washington to know what steps Moscow is ready to take if the US contingent withdraws from Afghanistan.

    One thing is clear: Uncle Sam's vaunted mighty grip began to loosen. The nuclear "treasured sword has become heavy for the king's shoulders." And now Russia should think about whether to take on the burden that the exhausted "partner" wants to shift? Maybe let him continue to spend both potential and resources. Perhaps the mind will pick up ...

    What kind of cooperation with the Americans can we talk about at all ?! These Americans most likely want to "get the chestnuts out of the fire" with our hands, and then they will accuse us of something, it is easy for them.

    On Afghanistan, the United States is superfluous in the negotiations. Feet in hand and home ...

      On Afghanistan, all unnecessary in the negotiations. Even the negotiations themselves are superfluous. History proves that the people there are wild, worship only Allah and green bills. Let yourself somehow, but still need to be fenced with a sanitary cordon.

      declared readiness of the USA for cooperation with the Russian Federation on
      Do we need it? Or "ilita" right now with boiling water ... it will be out of happiness, they say, the white gentleman deigned to pay attention to us .... ugh ... disgusting.
