Kabul: The Russian foreign ministry’s spokesperson, Maria Zakharova, in a press conference claimed that the US deliberately left weapons in Afghanistan, and “now they are destabilizing the situation because terrorists may get hold of them.”
Speaking at the press conference, Zakharova said that “we will not be surprised if these weapons soon surface in disputed areas of the region and other places.”
However, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, refuse the sale or smuggling of military equipment in Afghanistan and said that the current government will take care of this equipment responsibly.
“The concerns expressed are untrue. We reassure them that every weapon the Americans left behind has been stored safely at a depot and won’t fall into the hands of anyone. All of them under control,” Mujahid noted.
In the meantime, former US president Donald Trump, in an interview with Fox News, said that 700,000 advanced pieces of military equipment has been left in Afghanistan.
