UNITED NATIONS, September 29 (Itar-Tass) – Russia proceeds from the supposition that NATO will file a request with the UN Security Council for permission to continue training the servicemen of Afghanistan’s Security Forces, Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko told a group of Russian reporters at the UN headquarters Friday.
“Moscow still has very serious questions regarding the future parameters of /Western/ military presence in Afghanistan,” he said. “There is a possibility that NATO will be soliciting the UN Security Council’s permission to continue training the cadres for the Afghan internal security services and the Armed Forces,” Grushko said.
“There should be no other military functions and everything that spreads beyond the task of facilitating the Afghan stabilization will undermine regional security and generate an even greater uncertainty,” he added.
