From Deutsche Presse-Agentur: NATO is facing defeat in Afghanistan, and Russia and the states of Central Asia must be ready to pick up the pieces, Russia’s ambassador to NATO said Tuesday.
Discussions at a conference in Paris on the future of Afghanistan run by the East-West Institute think tank “have only further enhanced the impression of NATO’s looming capitulation in Afghanistan,” Dmitry Rogozin wrote in a Twitter feed from the meeting.

“Russia and its Central Asian partners should be ready for such a dramatic scenario,” Rogozin wrote. (photo: Reuters)
