Patrushev: Russian-US cooperation on Afghanistan does not suit everyone

The Russian Federation and the United States of America have managed to establish a fruitful dialogue on Afghanistan. Unfortunately, certain US political circles have a negative attitude to this.


This idea was expressed by the Secretary of the Security Council of Russia during interview edition of AiF.

Last week, a press appeared in the United States press that Russian intelligence agencies allegedly financed militants of the Taliban organization banned in the Russian Federation. The US media claimed that these funds were paid for the elimination by the Taliban of US troops.

Patrushev recalled that Washington has repeatedly made decisions to impose sanctions against Russia, based on fake the news... But in this case, everything is different, because even the Pentagon and the Trump administration have officially denied these speculations.

Also, do not forget that it is the United States that is related to the creation of the Taliban, and in Russia the activities of this organization have been banned since 2003.

The Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation expressed the hope that in the future, the American media will be more responsible about their work and stop publishing false information. Patrushev believes that for the purposes of the internal political struggle, US politicians should not slander our country:

One can only hope that henceforth American political circles will solve their internal problems without trying to earn election points at the expense of Russia.

    This is a specific topic!
    It is somehow doubtful to talk about mutually beneficial cooperation, but probably the most extreme, not beneficial to both parties from the definition in any way, not at all, can level out by joint efforts .... this is quite possible.

      that's quite possible.

      Not possible. Enemies cannot have common interests. And we are not partners and never were. We are enemies of the Anglo-Saxons and this is a fact.
      What kind of cooperation are we talking about if the drug traffic from Afghanistan has grown tenfold thanks to mattresses?

        I think your word "we" needs decoding.
        If you are talking about the main part of the population of Russia, then perhaps it is, but if we talk about the most powerful part of our society, then just look at the amounts on offshore accounts, their total number and the names of their owners to put your statement in GREAT doubt.
        And if we talk about Afghanistan, then Russia is currently unprofitable withdrawal of their (amers) contingent from this country. And primarily because of China. As soon as the United States leaves there, China will immediately enter. And it does not bode well for us.
        Yes, and Afghanistan too.
        Well, the security of the CIS borders will also be threatened by the Taliban and ISIS (the United States brought there).
        So for now, the US presence there is beneficial to us.

    And Lavrov once praised the cooperation in Syria.
    The conclusion suggests itself: while the media entertain the population with races on armored vehicles and announcements of threats and trials, the elite quite successfully cooperates .....

    If not for Gorbachev and other traitors, Afghanistan would eventually become the 17th socialist republic of the USSR, and the 16th - Mongolia.

      I see no reason for the development of close partnership between Russia and the United States, while the United States is holding back the development of the economy in Russia with sanctions and threats. As for Afghanistan, the LIB had to weigh everything before engaging the USSR in this war.
      Russia is full of its own territories, the solution of the problems of which is relevant and simply necessary. All of these arguments for cooperation with the US overseeing drug production in Afghanistan are unfounded. Maybe someone does not know where the drugs come from and through which countries?

        Prailno. All the rogues in one pile.
        And feed.
        Due to the oil and gas of Western Siberia.
        This was the dream of the Communists of the USSR. Only the dough for oil and gas was not enough for everyone. And the USSR burst.

          Read about Afghanistan’s natural resources. Many questions will disappear. By the way, there were Afghans at our faculty, purposeful and smart guys.

            And about Vitya and Masha do not need to read?
            Afghanistan is a poor country with a poor population. You know what the industry is.
            It was needed only by stupid communists. And still it is not clear why?

        Afghanistan can be either a prosperous Soviet republic with a warm climate, or a medieval province of the West for poppy cultivation .. There is no third option.

        For several decades now, Afghanistan has simply not become a state with a single center, but you are talking about stability and friendliness. It is clear that everyone who is not too lazy is climbing in there, but the Afghans themselves can’t figure it out among themselves. And he certainly would not have become the Soviet Republic, it is too heavy a burden.
