Iran’s special representative for Afghanistan says the United States has withdrawn from Afghanistan, but has left terrorist groups such as Daesh to continue its role in the region, including in the Central Asian country.
“The Daesh and other Takfiri terrorist groups, in fact, continue the role of American soldiers in the region,” Hassan Kazemi Qomi told Press TV on Tuesday.
“I believe this is a real proxy war. We witnessed the same thing in Iraq and Syria. After its defeat in Iraq, the United States replaced its own forces with other groups to pursue the American goals in the region,” he added.
