The US press believes that the American withdrawal from Afghanistan will deal a blow to China and Russia
By withdrawing troops from Afghanistan, the United States is freeing up resources to strengthen its opposition to China. And all the problems that the Afghan situation creates for the region, Beijing and Moscow will have to deal with independently, without the participation of the West.
This is evidenced by an article in the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal.
The US press believes that the American withdrawal from Afghanistan will deal a blow to China and Russia. For Moscow and Beijing, according to the publication, in this situation there will be more disadvantages than advantages.
Actually, at the first moment they did not immediately understand that now they had new big problems. The withdrawal of the US contingent from Afghanistan was reacted by some Chinese and Russian media with gloating and jubilant comments, soon replaced by more sober and alarming speculations. Along with the joy of America's shameful failure, it became clear that the United States was not the only loser.
Russia quickly realized that Moscow had reason to fear for the safety of its Central Asian allies, whose territories are directly adjacent to Afghanistan. And the point here is not even the ally duty of our country, but the fact that if radicalism penetrates Central Asia, it can carry with it a terrorist threat to Russia.
