Russian President Vladimir Putin, at a meeting with American leader Joe Biden in Geneva in June this year, warned him against attempts to create military bases in Central Asian countries against the background of events in Afghanistan. This was stated by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on the air of the Rossiya 24 TV channel.
We are categorically against you trying, as we have heard, to negotiate with the Central Asian countries on the deployment of part of the military infrastructure on their territory in order to deliver, if necessary, so-called over-the-horizon strikes on the territory of Afghanistan,” Lavrov quoted Putin.
According to the Foreign Minister, there were similar appeals to Pakistanis. Uzbekistan has publicly stated that their constitution does not provide for such actions with the deployment of military bases on its territory, Kyrgyzstan has also publicly stated through the mouth of the president that they do not want this, Lavrov noted. According to him, “knowing the importunity of the Americans,” it is possible that “they will continue to come from different sides with the same topic.”
Earlier it was reported that the CIA had a secret base near Kabul. According to media reports, military training and interrogations of captured terrorists took place at the facility.
There is no official data about this database. Satellite images are the only source of information about the location and the nature of its purpose. The journalists conducted their own investigation and were able to establish a number of important facts. Construction of the facility began in the fall of 2001, and the project was originally planned as a prison complex. There is evidence that indicates the use of torture and special methods of inquiry.
