Tillerson accuses Russia of supplying weapons to Taliban


U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson once again stated that Russia is supplying weapons to the Taliban (without providing any evidence). He said that during a briefing at the U.S. State Department.

“Russia is supplying arms to the Taliban, that is a violation, obviously, of international norms and it’s a violation of UN Security Council norms. We certainly would object to that and call Russia’s attention to that. If anyone is going to supply arms, it needs to be through the Afghan Government,” Tillerson said.

Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry, commenting on the accusations in the American media that Moscow is supplying arms to the Taliban, called them a “disinformation campaign” and “propaganda.”
