MOSCOW, January 20. /TASS/. The Anglo-Saxons maintain contact with the armed opposition in Afghanistan and secretly sponsor the Islamic State terror group (outlawed in Russia), Russian Special Presidential Envoy for Afghanistan Zamir Kabulov said on Friday.
"What’s worse is that apart from maintaining contact with the armed opposition in Afghanistan, the Anglo-Saxons secretly sponsor Islamic State members who are set not only against stability in our partner countries in Central Asia and other neighbors of Afghanistan, but against Russia’s security," he told the Rossiya-24 TV channel.
Kabulov pointed out that the Anglo-Saxons "are very eager to take revenge for their shameful military and political defeat in Afghanistan." "In retaliation, they are doing everything they can to prevent peace from coming to this long-suffering land," the Russian envoy added.
