MOSCOW, June 25. /TASS/. Afghanistan’s former President Hamid Karzai has said Thursday that he supports Crimea’s reunification with Russia.
"When problems arose in Ukraine, when Russia reunified with Crimea, I stood on Russia’s side. I recognized Crimea as part of Russia for historical reasons," Karzai said.
"This decision was due to my experience in working with governments of Western countries on what concerns political and security issues. Ponderous and interventionist approach of Western countries is worrisome," Karzai noted. "The US made a decision to enter Iraq, to impose an air blockade in Libya," he added.
"Russia cannot feel secure, cannot feel that its interests are respected," Karzai stressed.
