GROZNY, July 24. /TASS/. Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov has placed responsibility for the unstable situation in Afghanistan on the United States and NATO.
"Over the 37 years of warfare in Afghanistan, peace has become not a single step closer. Using the fight against its own bin Laden as a disguise, the United States has unleashed a civil war for decades to come. America and NATO could have solved the Afghan problem in just two years. But they need the eternal Afghan bloody pot claiming the lives of thousands of young Moslems," Kadyrov wrote on his Instagram account commenting on the July 23 terrorist attack in the Afghan capital city Kabul.
According to the Chechen leader, the United States and NATO have deliberately destabilized the situation in that country and are maintaining this instability. "Step by step, they have been unleashing new wars in Moslem countries. Iraq, Syria, Libya, Egypt, Yemen have been thrown to the verge of losing sovereignty," he wrote.
He called on the Afghan leaders to "drop personal and ethnics interests and strivings after power and to get united." "When Pashtuns, Uzbeks, Tajiks, the Sunni, the Shia are standing shoulder to shoulder no one will ever be able to impose his will on you," he stressed.
According to the Afghan interior ministry, the terrorist attack in Kabul on July 23 claimed the lives of 80 people. As many as 231 were wounded. The terrorist attack was committed during a protest action staged by the Hazara ethnic group, the Iranian television said.
