MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The level of joint actions between the military structures of Russia and Afghanistan have considerably grown and the countries have set “a legal foundation” in military-technical cooperation, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Wednesday.
“It’s nice to note that the level of joint actions have considerably grown as of late. After a long pause we were able to create ‘a legal foundation’ for our bilateral military-technical cooperation,” Shoigu said.
Afghanistan has been mired in a long-simmering war against Taliban terrorists. Formed in the 1990s, the Taliban seeks to enforce Sharia law in Afghanistan and neighboring Pakistan. The group is known for numerous terrorist attacks against authorities and civilians in both countries.
