Russia says could re-establish operations to guard Tajik-Afghan border

ASTANA, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Russia could re-establish security operations to guard the Tajik-Afghan border, Russian Deputy Defence Minister Yuri Borisov said on Thursday.

“I don’t rule it out... We have a (military) base there as you know,” Borisov told Reuters when asked if Russia could provide Tajikistan with military support to secure its border with Afghanistan.

“Our political leaders will discuss and decide. Everything is possible,” Borisov said. (Reporting by Denis Dyomkin; Writing by Maria Kiselyova; Editing by Jack Stubbs)
