Russian Foreign Ministry: US intelligence participates in drug trafficking

04.07.2020, Moscow.

The US intelligence, which has accused Russia of cooperating with the radical movement Taliban (organization banned in Russia), is implicated in drug trafficking, Russian President’s Special Representative for Afghanistan Zamir Kabulov said on July 4 on the air of the Russia One channel.

“Same great officers of American intelligence participate…in drug trafficking. Their aircraft fly without checking from Kandahar and Bagram to Germany, Romania, anywhere. Such a business. Every Afghan in Kabul will talk you about this, even a lazy one is ready to talk about it,” said Kabulov, who is the Director of the Second Asian Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

“It is an open secret that set the teeth on edge. Everyone waved a hand at this, as taken for granted,” added the expert.

On June 26, The New York Times published an article alleging that the Russian military intelligence had incited the Taliban (organization banned in Russia) to kill soldiers of the US-led coalition in Afghanistan. Following these allegations, Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi called for new sanctions against Russia.  The Russian side rejected the far-fetched allegations through information and diplomatic channels.
