Russia for withdrawal of US Troops from Afghanistan

U.S. should pull out of Afghanistan: Russian envoy

MOSCOW, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) — The U.S. military campaign in Afghanistan has failed and Washington should withdraw its troops from the country, Special Representative of the Russian President for Afghanistan Zamir Kabulov said Monday.

“Since the U.S. Army is unable to do anything serious, let it leave Afghanistan,” Kabulov was quoted by the Russian newspaper Izvestia as saying.

He said that, in spite of the U.S. presence in Afghanistan, the country is becoming a “global incubator of international terrorism.”
