“We cannot but share the Uzbek president’s concerns over current events in Afghanistan,” the Russian leader said.
Moscow and Tashkent are in effective talks on this problem, he noted. The two countries focused on the fighting against the terrorist threat and drug trafficking.
The Uzbek president raised at talks the situation in Afghanistan noting that he was alarmed that after withdrawal of international military contingent from that country “the situation which is taking place in Iraq will recur.” “Already today there are serious signs of some elements infiltrating in Afghanistan from Iraq and Syria. All this needs development and joint and preemptive measures,” Karimov said.
As for drug smuggling, according to incomplete reports, around 80 thousand tons of narcotics are delivered annually from Afghanistan through Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and other CIS states.
