    Moscow has not intentions of increasing military support for Kabul in the worsening situation in the region, Russian Presidential Envoy for Afghanistan Zamir Kabulov said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Earlier, Russia provided Afghanistan with 10,000 Kalashnikov rifles and millions of rounds of ammunition as a gift following the Russian-Afghan security agreement.

    “We’ve delivered [a cargo], that’s enough,” Kabulov told RIA Novosti when asked whether Russia would increase military deliveries to Afghanistan.

    Late last year, Kabul reached out to Russia for military assistance in the fight against terrorism.
