Kandahar police chief general Abdul Raziq has said that certain countries in the region are trying to keep the Taliban’s war machine operational as they believe that conflict in Afghanistan protects their interests.
He said that countries like Pakistan, Russia and Iran are funding and equipping the Taliban and other insurgent groups in order to fuel the war machine and pursue their own objectives.
Raziq said some countries in the region have a vested interest in the conflict in Afghanistan.
“The war will be increased on some special fronts. They hail only minor gains. There is a possibility about the rise in casualties among our forces, but at the end, Afghanistan will be victorious, so far the insurgents have managed to take over only a small locality,” said civil society activist Ahmad Shah Sepahr.
He claimed that there is sufficient evidence to show that Pakistan, Russia and Iran are funding the Taliban and other militant groups in the country.
