"All the events that have occurred over the past 13-14 years in Afghanistan and other countries in the region have shown that terrorism is an international threat. The people of Afghanistan are among its victims," he said at a meeting with the speaker of the upper house of Russia's parliament, Valentina Matvienko in Moscow.
Muslimyar added that Afghanistan is threatened not only by the Islamic State (ISIL) jihadist group but also extremists from other terrorist organizations.
Afghanistan continues to be in political and social turmoil as both the Taliban and other extremist organizations, such as IS, take advantage of persistent national instability, despite billions of dollars in assistance received following a 2001 US-led invasion.
The US-led NATO mission formally ended its International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) combat operations in Afghanistan on December 31, 2014, transitioning to a non-combat mission in the country.
