President of Russia Vladimir Putin has stood against the deployment of the American armed forces in the Central Asia countries during the meeting with U.S. President Joe Biden as The Wall Street Journal reported.
This decision has played its role in the disruption of the efforts of the U.S. military men on the fight against new terrorist threats after the withdrawal from Afghanistan.
The results of the talks between the U.S. and Russian leaders have complicated the possibilities of the U.S. Army on the deployment of the unmanned flying vehicle and other counter-terrorist forces in the countries bordering with Afghanistan that do not have entrance to the sea. This issue has worsened after the Afghan government and the armed forces suffered defeat during the conflict with the Taliban.
According to the U.S. officials, the exchange of opinions between Washington and Moscow also shows that Russia is more focused on the keeping of Central Asia as the sphere of influence, not the extension of the cooperation with current American president due to the unrests in Afghanistan.
“The Russians are not interested in the return of the U.S. there,” former State Department expert on Eurasia, Paul Goble stated.
On August 15, the Taliban militants seized Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said that he had left the country to avoid bloodshed as the Taliban entered the capital Kabul. Members of the diplomatic missions of the Western countries and their staff consisting of locals did not evacuate and they stay in the capital airport, where chaos is observed.
