Russia and the Taliban have separately rejected comments made by the head of US forces in Afghanistan that Moscow has been supporting, and even supplying weapons to, the insurgent group.
The Russian embassy in Kabul in a statement dismissed the general’s claim as “baseless” and “idle gossip”.
A Taliban spokesman said they had not “received assistance from any country”.
The spokesman told the Pakistan-based Afghan Islamic Press news agency: “The enemy has no evidence in this regard.”
