MOSCOW- Russian President Vladimir Putin has expressed his concern regarding the security situation in Afghanistan saying that Islamic States (DAISH) is trying to make influence in Afghanistan and occupy parts of the country.

In remarks in Kremlin, he said some of the provinces of Afghanistan are facing serious threat from DAISH.

Although no one in Afghanistan has announced support to DAISH but previous reports indicate the existence of their supporters in the country.

DAISH who was fighting the Iraqi and Syrian government from years appeared to occupy more areas in these countries since June.

The group is now trying to be more powerful with more supporters and occupation than Al-Qaeda.
