Blinken said that the American weapons inherited by the Taliban do not threaten Afghanistan's neighbors
US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken claims that American weapons and military equipment that have fallen into the hands of the Taliban movement do not pose a threat to the neighboring states of Afghanistan.
"Now we see that a significant part of the equipment left, including in the hands of the Afghan forces, which then fell to the Taliban, judging by what my colleagues from the US Department of Defense tell me, cannot function or will cease to function in the near future, as it needs to be serviced," Blinken said.
According to the Secretary of State, equipment and weapons are not of strategic value. It will not pose a threat to the United States or neighboring states with Afghanistan.
Blinken admitted that judging by the photos with equipment and military uniforms, which depict the militants of the movement, the abandoned weapons "are in their hands."
Earlier, the US Secretary of State said that the state government is discussing with the Taliban movement issues that the White House considers important.
He noted that the discussions begin with a commitment on the part of the Taliban to allow people to leave Afghanistan if they want to.
