LONDON -- U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis arrived in Kabul, Afghanistan, Monday as the country descended further into chaos.
Worsening the situation are new allegations the Russians are supplying the Taliban with weapons.
“We’re going to have to confront Russia where what they’re doing is contrary to international law,” Mattis said.
Gen. John Nicholson, the top U.S. general in Afghanistan, made it clearer. A reporter asked Nicholson “So you are not refuting that they are sending weapons?”
“Oh, no, I am not refuting that,” Nicholson replied.
