MOSCOW – 24 October 2017: Moscow considers Afghan President Ashraf Ghani's allegations about Russia’s support to the Taliban inadmissible, TASS quoted the Russian Foreign Ministry as saying Monday.
"We took notice of reports in a number of Afghan media about statements made by President Ghani during his recent trip to the Paktia Province on Russia's support to the Taliban," the ministry said.
"We would like to remind that Afghan officials have repeatedly said at various level that such accusations are unfounded," the ministry noted.
The ministry stressed that Moscow has been consistently offering comprehensive assistance to Kabul, "including in what concerns strengthening combat effectiveness of its national security forces, and has been promoting the intra-Afghan dialogue in the interests of peace and stability in that country."
