“The situation in Afghanistan deteriorated after US and NATO allies rushed to withdraw – also can be called “run away” – from the country,” the Russian President said while speaking about Afghanistan at the CSTO meeting in a video format.

“Given the serious risks in connection with the situation in Afghanistan, the CSTO has to implement a common and agreed line,” he said.

On September 14, Vladimir Putin and Pakistani PM Imran Khan discussed the situation in Afghanistan.
