MOSCOW, May 8 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said Russia might encounter risks and threats from Afghanistan, because radical groups in that country might try to spread their activity to neighboring states.
"There are reasons to believe that we might encounter an aggravation of the situation /in Afghanistan/ in the near future," Putin said at a session of the Russian Security Council on Wednesday which addressed the development of the Afghan situation.
"International terrorist and radical groups do not conceal their plans to export instability, and will try to carry sabotage over to the territory of neighboring countries and Russia," he underlined. Such development of the situation is fraught with risks and threats, including the growth of drug trafficking, crime, uncontrolled flows of refugees and fundamentalism.
"In this connection, we must have a clear strategy of actions, which would take into account various scenarios of the development of events," Putin underlined.
