MOSCOW, November 17 (Itar-Tass) — Russia voices concern over the U.S. plans to create counter-terrorism bases in Afghanistan and expand its presence in Central Asia, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday.
“It is not clear how the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan in 2014 is linked to the end of the anti-terrorist operation, on one hand, and the creation of U.S. anti-terrorist bases, on the other hand,” the Russian minister noted.
“We are asking our American partners, but till now there are more questions than answers,” Lavrov said, adding, “From time to time we’re getting information saying our American colleagues want to expand their presence in Central Asian countries.”
