ISAF has failed to handle Afghan goals: Russia
"International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan has failed to handle the set goals. Terrorism in the country has not been unrooted and drug trafficking has increased," the minister said at an international security conference in Moscow.
Russian Sputnik reports that Moscow would continue to provide Tajikistan with significant military support and would strengthen its base in the country, Shoigu reiterated.
"We will continue to provide strong support to Tajikistan with weapons and military equipment, as well as to strengthen our outpost in the country — the Russian military base," the minister concluded.
