International Conference on Security Issues in Afghanistan and Central Asia Held in Moscow

Head of the General Staff of the Russian Federation Valery Gerasimov takes part in an international conference on security issues in Afghanistan and Central Asia. During the conference, which began in Moscow, Valery Gerasimov noted that the actions of the international coalition led by the United States do not lead to results in the fight against international terrorism in general and the ISIL group in particular. According to the head of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, an increase in the activity of terrorist groups in the north of Afghanistan is recorded, which represents a threat to the countries of Central Asia, primarily to Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

Valery Gerasimov noted that at least 50 thousands of militants of various extremist organizations are operating in Afghan territory.

Press Service of the Ministry of Defense cites the statement of the Chief of the Russian General Staff

The previously created mechanisms of regional security based on mutual deterrence do not work today. There are new challenges and threats that are not specific to this region. According to our data, there are thousands of militants of the so-called “Islamic State” in Afghanistan from 2 to 3.


Gerasimov:
As a result of the sabotage and terrorist activities of radical extremists, the number of dead Afghan citizens this year increased by 25% and reached over 3,5 thousand people. About 7 thousand were injured.


Gerasimov called on the countries of the region to unite to counter the terrorist threat. The head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation spoke about refugees from Afghanistan:

According to some data, already this year in search of refuge in the countries of the continent up to 1 million people can go. Many among them come from Afghanistan. Every day, the Afghan authorities are referred to 8 thousand for issuing a passport.


Zamir Kabulov, Special Presidential Representative for Afghanistan, also spoke at the conference. According to him, training camps for ISIL militants are being operated in Afghanistan, and people from the Russian Federation and Central Asian countries are being trained in these camps.

Representatives of Afghanistan, Tajikistan and other countries of the region take part in the Moscow conference.

    I’m more afraid of the penetration of any preachers into the country, who are recruiting weak people to carry out an act of terrorism, more efforts should be directed to the fight against such preachers.

      We need to return to our Asia! One base in Tajikistan will not be enough! Without our military presence in this region, an ass will happen sooner or later! Historically proven! Only the presence of Russian garrisons in the Central Asian and Central Asian republics contributed to peace both in Russia itself and in the republics!

    To assist the leadership of Afghanistan and other Central Asian states in equipping and training law enforcement agencies to increase the effectiveness of their actions against extremists. By joint efforts, block funding sources, arms and material supply channels to extremist organizations operating in Afghanistan.
    “Only focused joint work will help stabilize the situation in Central Asia and prevent the spread of the influence of extremist organizations in other countries and regions,” the chief of the General Staff of Russia emphasized.

      I wonder if this means that our next missile or bomb attack will be delivered to ISIS or the Taliban in Afghanistan? Something tells me that it is possible.

        At a briefing, it was stated that terrorists from the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of the PRC are being trained in Syria and Afghanistan.
        That’s China’s reason to take effect in Syria and Afghanistan.

    A serious statement, as well as the situation in Afghanistan. And after all, as the Syrian territories are liberated, part of the ISIS militants will reach Afghanistan. And this is guaranteed to cause a new round of escalation of tension on our southern borders. As an option, really "strangle" ISIS in Syria and Iraq. hi

    We see the difference between Russian and American politics: we just got into a conflict, and the people started to move, began to draw conclusions and decide what to do. Now the main thing in this aspect is not to go too far, and there will be all the rules. To the glory of the Russian Federation !!!

      I do not even know. It turns out that they need to be cleaned from the Taliban and ISIS. Why they do not present the United States and NATO that they can not and can bring down from Afghanistan. These are not kicked out and we are asked to help. Are we supposed to correct all exceptional errors? By the way, China is also in the SCO, can it help?

      You know, well, how much did not surprise. Afghans are far from stupid people and can count the pros and cons. During the presence of the SA, roads, houses, hospitals, and schools were built. During the presence of the SGA, everything was only collapsing. hi

    According to the head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, an increase in the activity of terrorist groups in northern Afghanistan is recorded, which poses a threat to the countries of Central Asia, especially to Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

    Here the weakest link is Turkmenistan.
    The head of state signed decrees on dismissal in connection with the transfer to another job of the Secretary of the State Security Council of Turkmenistan, Lieutenant General Yaylym Berdiyev from the post of Minister of National Security of Turkmenistan, as well as Major General Begench Gundogdyev from the post of Minister of Defense.
    Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov appointed Yaylym Berdiyev as Minister of Defense of Turkmenistan, and Begench Gundogdyev as Commander of the Naval Forces of Turkmenistan.
    The head of state has appointed Lieutenant General Guichgeldi Khojaberdiev as the new Minister of National Security of Turkmenistan.

    immigrants from the Russian Federation and Central Asian countries are being trained.

    One of the important factors that people go to all kinds of terrorist organizations, such as ISIS, is to reduce the overall level of access to vocational education and further employment in Russia and the CIS countries.
