The militants of the radical Taliban movement claimed control of 90 percent of the Afghan borders. This was announced by the representative of the Taliban, Zabiullah Mujahid.
He noted that the Taliban controls the borders with most of the countries with which Afghanistan borders.
According to him, the borders with Iran, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan are under full control of the radicals.
Previously, a source in the State Committee for National Security Tajikistan reported that the Taliban control 80 percent of the Afghan-Tajik border, and the information about its complete seizure by terrorists does not correspond to reality.
The situation in Afghanistan worsened after the United States and NATO countries officially began withdrawing troops from the country in May. After that, the Taliban went on the offensive against government forces and began to establish strict Islamic orders in the occupied area.
