NATO “widely-advertised” operations in Afghanistan yield little result
"Afghanistan’s drug flow remains a huge headache for Russia, where up to 40,000 die each year because of narcotics use and about 2.5 million are turned into drug addicts. Almost ten years on after the US and its NATO allies launched their so-called “Operation Enduring Freedom” Afghanistan remains the world’s largest producer of opium – the key ingredient for heroin."The scale of [drug] endemic has reached such a level, when it threatens international peace and stability in different regions of the world,” Patrushev said.Note:
In move to find a solution to the situation, Moscow has long been pushing for the eradication of opium poppy fields in Afghanistan. “Unfortunately, Russia’s efforts to help counter drug-trafficking have not been supported by the Americans,” Patrushev noted.
Neither the US nor its allies want to eliminate the opium plantations saying that they would not want to remove the only source of income of Afghanistan’s population without providing them with an alternative. But Russia finds this excuse rather confusing.
