Russian FM Denounces U.S. Wrong Attempt to Build Military Bases in Afghanistan
Moscow, March 22 (KCNA) -- Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at a recent interview with a TV broadcasting service slammed the U.S. wrong attempt to build military bases in Afghanistan.

He termed odd the U.S. government's attitude of having a purposeful consultation with the Afghan counterpart over the issue of setting up 4 or 5 military bases in Afghanistan after the withdrawal of U.S. and NATO forces in 2014.

It is illogical for the U.S. to assert that it would keep military bases even after the withdrawal, he noted, adding the territory of Afghanistan should not be used for establishing different military facilities to cause the concern of the third country.
