WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Earlier, Afghanistan’s Tolo News reported that Dostum’s plane was prevented from landing in Mazar-e-Sharif. According to the reports, his flight was first re-rerouted to the capital Kabul but eventually landed in neighboring Turkmenistan.
"German forces in Kunduz did not deny Afghan First Vice President Dostum's plane landing in Mazar-e-Sharif," the statement said on Monday. "It is not the business of the Resolute Support Mission to get involved in internal Afghan government matters."
The official was returning from a medical trip to Turkey, where he lived in the 1990s.
Dostum has been under increased scrutiny since late last year, when he was accused by a political rival, Ahmad Ishchi, of kidnapping, torture and rape.
Last week, Pajhwok Afghan News reported that a criminal case against Dostum had been filed in court.
