There's Risk of Unrest in Afghanistan Spilling Over to Neighbouring Countries, Lavrov Warns

Afghanistan has been witnessing an escalation of violence since the United States and its NATO allies began withdrawing troops from the nation, in accordance with a deal between Washington and the Taliban*, signed in February 2020.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has warned of a risk of unrest in Afghanistan spilling over to neighbouring nations, adding that the situation in the country is "quickly degrading".

"The threat of such a scenario remains a serious obstacle to the involvement of Afghanistan in regional cooperation", Lavrov said during a plenary session of the conference "Central and South Asia. Regional Interconnection: Challenges and Opportunities" on Friday.
