MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Afghanistan is experiencing political, social and security instability, as the Taliban movement and other radical extremist organizations such as Daesh, which is prohibited in many countries, including the United States and Russia, continue to stage attacks against civilian and state targets.
“According to some figures today, there are around 10,000 [Daesh militants], though one year ago there were only a few hundred. Most are coming naturally from being squeezed out of Syria and Iraq into Afghanistan. This is a serious threat to us,” Bordyuzha told journalists.
The United States, on the other hand, believes that the group's presence in Afghanistan has significantly decreased due to the US and Afghan forces' "constant pressure" on the terrorists.
