The United States is secretly supporting Daesh in Afghanistan, according to a Russian diplomat.

Presss Tv reports that a senior Russian diplomat and presidential envoy to Afghanistan claimed there was evidence that the United States was trying to covertly support the Daesh terrorist group in the country in order to undermine the current de facto political regime.
Zamir Kabulov said Friday, Jan. 20, that Washington was seeking revenge for its shameful defeat in Afghanistan and aimed to covertly support the Daesh terrorist group to cause more damage in the war-torn South Asian country.
“Yes, there are such data, they [les autorités américaines] are doing it not for good, but for evil, because they really want to avenge their shameful military-political defeat in Afghanistan,” he told a Russian broadcaster.
“And in retaliation, they are doing everything to ensure that peace does not come to this long-suffering country, but even worse, in addition to contacts with the armed opposition in Afghanistan, the Anglo-Saxons secretly support Daesh. »
The Taliban made a resounding comeback last August after toppling the US-backed administration in Kabul. Last year, US sanctions and the freezing of Afghan assets created one of the worst human disasters in Afghanistan.
The United States invaded Afghanistan in October 2001 following the September 11, 2001 attacks.
Yet no Afghan nationals were involved in the attacks. Since then, hundreds of thousands of Afghans have died.
The war was waged in the name of the fight against the fight against “terrorism”. But nearly two decades of Washington’s military presence ended in a hasty withdrawal and left nothing but destruction and insecurity.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said it has strong evidence relating to US cooperation with Daesh.
A series of deadly terrorist attacks have rocked Afghanistan in recent months, sending waves of fear and panic across the country and challenging the de facto rulers in Kabul more than a year after the withdrawal of allied forces led by the United States. Most of these attacks were claimed by Daesh.
Many regional observers believe that the resurgence of the group is supported by Western states.
After being humiliated and expelled from the country, foreign powers see a new ally in Daesh to advance their agendas in the country.
In line with this, the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ebrahim Raisi, recently underlined this fact by holding Western spy services responsible for the violence in Afghanistan.
