Top Russian diplomat Zamir Kabulov said over the weekend that Moscow is ready to sit down with Washington to discuss cooperation on Afghanistan.
The development comes despite speculation that the US is enabling the destabilization of the region. In its report on the Russian diplomat’s statements on Saturday, Turkish news outlet Yeni Safak recalled former Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s October interview with Russia’s RT, during which Karzai pointed the finger at the US for the ISIS buildup in the country.
“Since the arrival of Daesh [an Arabic acronym for ISIS] on the Afghan scene,” the US has taken no action against them, Karzai said.
“From the two years onwards to today, every day the local people, the local elders, government officials, media and others began to report that unmarked helicopters, unmarked foreign helicopters, would go in and support extremists in all parts of the country,” he added.
Special envoy Kabulov said in his comments over the weekend that the number of ISIS militants in Afghanistan has now grown to 10,000.
Canadian organization Global Research wrote in July that Washington’s efforts to destabilize the region stretch into Pakistan, a key segment of China’s Belt and Road Initiative. The paper states that disrupting China’s economic lifelines is an open objective of US policy makers, citing multiple papers published by US think tanks.
Research from the Strategic Studies Insitute of the US Army’s War College stated as far back as 2006 that:
Foreign policy realists, citing history and political theory, argue that inevitably China will challenge American primacy and that it is a question of “when” and not “if” the U.S.-China relationship will become adversarial or worse.
The Global Research report suggests that the US has aims to foment independence movements in Pakistan’s Baluchistan province, the location of the port of Gwadar, an important lynch pin in China’s Belt and Road Initiative. Additionally, Washington would like to conflate separatist and other extremist groups with ISIS as a way of disassociating militants from the United States:
Previously, the United States has attempted to use a variety of local groups to foment political instability and violence. Now it appears that all of its geopolitical mischief is being lumped under the catch-all, the “Islamic State.” In reality, the militants who kidnapped and murdered the two Chinese teachers in Baluchistan, Pakistan, were likely local militants the US has been backing for years, and whose role in destabilizing Pakistan is increasingly understood by local and global audiences.
Assigning blame to the Islamic State appears to be a means of disassociating America from the violence it is intentionally fueling across the region.
So Pakistanis used to sleep in bed with American for the past 50 years and now American is disposing them off. Serves right the Pakistani elite who can pimp off their motherland to any buyer for a right price.
that suits in a wY
Very interesting and I thought Soros owns ATimes. The US probably have the best intel on the ground and they just chose to sit on them and watch it unfold. China should start taking more responsibility if the US is just idling by. Its belt and road initiative is way too important to do nothing.
The Russians know that there is high correlation between Western CIA NATO White Helmets NGO funding and arming for Jihadists and Chinese Investments in any place especially along the Belt and Road.
“Global Research” is a one man Russian outfit. If you don’t have reliable sources, don’t write.
Why is that Americans are so blood thirsty?
They disrupt peace and make people kill each other all over the world. It seem to me that killing people is their hobby and pride.
Gabor Mehes why don’t you shut up and take a walk in the park. Instead posting stupid remarks.
I would expect Atimes to dig up better research on this topic. They’re playing on Russian propoganda at best.
R.c. Hanbali Perhaps because he is right?
It’s a fact and it’s a reality…US is the source of destabilization in the region and Daesh is it’s proxy…
Cynthia Diaz do you have any idea why the USA trained Oussama bin Laden & his jihadi goons back in the 80’s in trying to get Afghanistan back from the Russians. &post 9/11 the USA spent $$trillions trying to establish itself in the very strategic Hindu Kush (Afghanistan) that the British and Russian empires fought for few centuries to bag that precious peace of land. ..the USA is trying all it can to partition the whole of central and western Asia .. thankfully they are failing and very miserably so.
Carrying on with the British mantra of Divide and rule but loaded with destruction
may b you have doubts on reliable sources. The people of countries on one Belt one road knows what a shit role USA is playing in this region.
R.c. Hanbali The US wanted to get revenge for the Soviet Union’s support of the communist North Vietnam during the Vietnam War and eventually caused the collapse of the Soviet Empire and ISIS and Al Queda were the unintentional by-products of that…
Guys, guys, blame your own inadequate societies instead of looking for scapegoats.
So, nothing is for free! Bravo.
As the article says, Global Research is based in Quebec, Canada. It was started by a poliical science professor and is network of academics, etc.
US should come to sense now. US can make heaven on earth or hell. Why all this senseless killings and destruction. Many young American soldiers are dying for this senseless conflicts created by US across the world. I feel deeply for the families who lost their sons and daughters and many are going to lose their lives for nothing. May good lord bring some sense into the American leaders and prople. Amen.
Richard Vaux if you believe Trump means what he says , then you should realize what your shit eating Trump says:
you are not only an image editor but also a fact editor. so let me enlighten you if Pakistan is doing something in Afghanistan, tell your Afghan government to get out of the US India Afghanistan nexus and not let its soil endanger Pakistan and its neighbouring states. Haqqani Network and Taliban are in no way Terrorists but it is USA that is terrorist.
