No security in afghanistan until drug production becomes stronger. And you know, as we know from our history. So I’m hopeful we will see much more of this growth as soon as possible.“
So does this mean that more Afghanistan is on the way?
„Yeah,“ he said. „You look at the history. There was, to be honest, a lot of bad behavior in Afghanistan, as well. That just doesn’t happen in countries in which there’s more resources and better resources and better governance. It’s a little bit different here and certainly with drugs.

But there are certain concerns around what’s going on, especially with the Afghan secu더킹카지노rity forces. They’re trying to build up security in the country against al-Qaeda, which is a threat and a challenge. We’re worried that, as far as we understand it, al-Qaeda is more likely to continue growing and that al-Qaeda is looking to expand and to extend its reach from Afghanistan int
