MOSCOW, May 24 (Itar-Tass) — The U.S. plans to deploy bases in Afghanistan after 2014 run counter the resolution of internal Afghan issues, Russian presidential special envoy for Afghanistan Zamir Kabulov said.
“The agreement on the U.S. bases in Afghanistan after 2014 has not been signed yet. It is planning to be concluded in a year,” the director of the Russian Foreign Ministry 2nd Asia Department told a press conference on Thursday.
“The document will regulate the status of bases and the rights of American servicemen. This brings up the question – why,” the diplomat stressed. “Such infrastructure is not designed to resolve internal Afghan issues,” he added.
