The United States, leaving Afghanistan, where it lost everything that could be lost, is nevertheless trying to gain a foothold in the Central Asian region, Russian Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu told reporters in Dushanbe, where a meeting of defense ministers of the member states is being held today. Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).
“The US has widely announced to everyone: we are leaving Afghanistan. This is indeed the case. But at the same time, negotiations are underway with all states adjacent to Afghanistan on the creation of some logistics centers, bases for the withdrawal of equipment from there and, of course, the creation of centers where refugees from Afghanistan could be admitted – those people with whom the United States cooperated for many years. there, ”said the Russian Defense Minister.
According to Sergei Shoigu, it is no secret to anyone that these negotiations are “quite active and rather intrusive.”
“Here I can only say one thing, and this is a normal sound logic: why do you go out if you stand right behind the fence and, figuratively speaking, through the cracks trying to observe what is happening there? Why leave? To literally stay on the border? The answer is absolutely obvious: this is an attempt to gain a foothold in the Central Asian region. Naturally, having lost everything that could have been lost in Afghanistan, ”said the head of the Russian military department.
At the same time, Sergei Shoigu noted that it is difficult to find on the planet “a good place, with good consequences, where the United States came, and where they stayed for a long time.” “The same Syria, the same Libya – is there something good there? Everything continues there. In the same Syria, there is an unceremonious robbery of the state, oil and other minerals are completely unceremoniously exported. They are exported without the knowledge and without benefit for the Syrian state, ”the Russian Defense Minister emphasized.
On the other hand, he noted, “there are sanctions that prohibit the supply of the same oil products to the same Syria.”
“And there are not only oil products. There is food, medicine, and much more. What good happened there? Libya is divided into two parts today, and God forbid that the agreements that were signed were reached in Berlin to be implemented. Naturally, everyone is doing everything to ensure that, in the end, Libya again becomes a peaceful, united and prosperous state, ”said Army General Sergei Shoigu.
According to the head of the Russian military department, when non-regional players intervene in a party, “it turns out what we get.” “I can still give a lot of examples, but I think that this is enough,” stated the Russian Defense Minister.
