Thus, Peskov responded to a question from the press about the possibility of holding Moscow responsible for the Afghan situation due to the alleged Russian refusal to allow Washington to deploy its forces in the region, as reported by the American Wall Street Journal.
The Kremlin spokesman noted that the conflict in the Central Asian country and the withdrawal of US forces were discussed between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Joe Biden in Geneva on June 16.
“But as a rule we do not publicize the nuances to the public,” he was quoted by the RIA Novosti news agency as saying.
The US publication indicated that Biden appealed to Putin at the Geneva summit to request the deployment of US forces in the Central Asian countries bordering Afghanistan after the withdrawal of forces from the country.
“Here, with all my heart, it is impossible to transfer responsibility to someone else, so I do not think that there can be such a goal,” Peskov said about the article.
On more than one occasion in recent months, Russian authorities have warned of the danger posed by the accelerated withdrawal of US forces from the Islamic State, while reporting a clear advance of Taliban forces across the country.
