The Russian Foreign Minister says that America has shown in its 20-year presence in Afghanistan that it has not fought terrorism in that country.

Sergey Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Minister, said on Monday in an interview with the TASS news agency that the US came to Afghanistan with the “sympathies” of the UN Security Council after the attack on the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001.

The Russian Foreign Minister said that no country opposed the American and coalition attacks on Afghanistan, and the Russian President was the first to offer help and support to George Bush, the President of the United States at the time. But, according to him, two decades of American presence in Afghanistan have shown that the country has not fought terrorists.

Lavrov said, “No one objected or called the entry of American coalition troops into Afghanistan an aggression or occupation. Everyone understood that such a terrorist attack must be held accountable. Twenty years of stay in Afghanistan showed that the Americans did not fight any terrorism.”

He continued that everyone understood that such terrorist acts should be held accountable. America’s 20-year presence in Afghanistan has shown that Washington has not fought terrorists.

The Russian Foreign Minister also claimed that Americans “created structures and organizations there, which later resulted in Al-Qaeda (outlawed in Russia). Then they began to use it to punish and provoke undesirable regimes in the Middle East and other regions.”

According to an analysis by Foreign Policy, terrorist organizations such as Al-Qaeda have reportedly expanded their activities in Afghanistan with the assistance of the Taliban government, a claim that the Taliban administration denies.

The Russian Foreign Minister further stated in this interview that the actions of Western countries in Ukraine are aimed at preventing Russia from becoming a major power.
