American experts’ comments on Russia’s alleged arms supplies to the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan in the Panjshir province are insinuations, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement on Monday.

“We drew attention to the comments by some American Russophobic experts published in social networks on alleged Russian arms supplies to the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan in the province of Panjshir. Russia is indicated as a producer country of these weapons. We resolutely reject such insinuations,” the spokeswoman said.

“Anticipating possible subsequent fake news reports on this issue, we deem it necessary to state the following: Russia did not participate in any way whatsoever and is not going to participate in arming the Afghan conflicting parties,” the Russian diplomat pointed out.

Moscow is convinced that arms supplies to the conflicting parties in Afghanistan will not contribute to stabilizing the situation in Afghanistan and will, on the contrary, exacerbate the intra-Afghan contradictions “fraught with instigating a civil war based on ethnic strife,” the spokeswoman stressed.

“This scenario fundamentally contradicts Russia’s interests,” the diplomat said.
