ISIL Emissaries Increased Activity in Afghanistan Causing Concern
Russian Defense Minister Gen. Sergei Shoigu said that only a joint effort by all countries concerned could boost security in Afghanistan.
Increasing activity by Islamic State (ISIL) emissaries in Afghanistan calls for particular concern, Russian Defense Minister Gen. Sergei Shoigu said Thursday.
"The increasing activity by so-called Islamic State emissaries in Afghanistan raises particular concern. The events in Syria have shown that without taking timely collective measures and decisions, the fight against extremism demands much more effort and is accompanied with the loss of thousands of human lives," Shoigu said in a written address to an international conference on Afghanistan.
