BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:20 P.M.) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused the U.S. government on Thursday of transferring the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) from Syria to neighboring Iraq and Afghanistan.

“Moscow is concerned with Washington’s transfer of Daesh militants to Iraq and Afghanistan,” Lavrov said during a press conference on Thursday.

“Russia calls on the U.S. to explain relocation of Daesh fighters to Iraq and Afghanistan,” he added, as quoted by the Interfax News Agency.

Russia has accused the United States of transferring Daesh terrorists to Afghanistan on a number of occasions in the past.

Washington has repeatedly denied these allegations from Moscow.

Funny fact, other sources accuse Iran to transfer ISIS to Afghanistan by land.
This makes more sense since ISIS founder Zarqawi hid in Iran b4 being smuggled to Iraq by IRGC/QF

I think you’ll find Zarqawi was wounded in Iraq and got medical treatment in Iran.
The Americans have killed Zarqawi many times according to their reports.
It is likely that he was a straw man and never existed at all.

2350 year old Alexander the Great strategy : creating artificial enemies, have others fighting them, thus creating a vacuum of power and then fill it, posing as a hero while entering the fight only when the end is near????

It was ranked 8th most powerful country in the world this year.
This is the result of billions in military and financial aid from the US.
You obviously have a limited understanding of Israeli influence and foreign affairs.

@ Rabbe, Mostly about fossil resources and who can build pipelines to sell in the EU. The same reason why the US do not want NorthStream 2 and threaten Germany with sanctions.

So it is not much about Israel thought that maybe a reason too.

Yes agreed, but Israel is just as much an instigator of ME policy as the US is. The zionist lobbies and dual us/israeli nationalists see to that.

I am taking the liberty of chiming in Stern. Israel already has gas line pipes in place. also Chinese are currently working on creating a new port. So they are also involved.

Daeshbags-Sux: Un blogger cualquiera puede escribir, no todo lo de internet es verdad.
Aplicando la lógica: EE.UU. necesita de ISIS para mantenerse en Siria, también necesita hombres para luchar contra los Talibanes e ISIS es quien lo hace actualmente, por tanto tiene sentido la transferencia de combatientes de ISIS por parte de EE.UU.
