Russia against US forces pull out from Afghanistan

KABUL (Pajhwok): Russia said on Tuesday that any decision by the United States to withdraw its forces from Afghanistan would worsen the situation in the country, a media report said.

Moscow had not yet spoken to the Trump administration over the issue of US forces withdrawal from the war-torn country, said Russian foreign ministry official.

"As far as I know, Trump does not currently have any intentions to withdraw, which is logical, because if in the current environment he decides to withdraw the contingent, then everything will collapse," Interfax quoted Zamir Kabulov, special representative to the Russian president on Afghanistan, as saying.

Last year, the then US President Barack Obama announced that 8,400 American troops would remain in Afghanistan till the end of his administration in January 2017 as against 5,500 decided earlier.
