Uzbekistan’s authorities have denied reports that it has violated Afghanistan’s airspace by flying drones over the neighboring country.

“Some media and social networks have been disseminating information about the supposed violation of Afghanistan’s airspace by unmanned aerial vehicles of the Republic of Uzbekistan,” Uzbekistan’s defense ministry said in a statement on May 1.

“This information absolutely does not correspond to reality. The air forces of the Republic of Uzbekistan have not violated the airspace of neighboring states.”

Earlier, Russia’s Sputnik news agency publishing a video suggested that drones spotted flying over the northern Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif, 80 kilometers from the border with Uzbekistan, were Uzbek-manufactured.

Last month, Daesh claimed to have launched a rocket attack against Uzbekistan from Afghanistan. Uzbekistan and Afghanistan, however, rejected the group’s claim.

Afghanistan withdrawal probe sparks anxiety within Biden administration: US’s McCaul

US Representative Michael McCaul, chairman of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, believes the probe into America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan has sparked anxiety within the Biden administration.

“Are we going to get scalps? I don’t know, but are we going to hold people accountable? Yeah. And I think at the end of the day, my intent is to make sure that this never happens again,” McCaul told Axios in an interview.

US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee launched an investigation into America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan several months ago.

Democrats have slammed Republican investigations like the Biden impeachment inquiry as witch hunts. But Republicans argue the Afghanistan probe has yielded evidence that’s hard for the White House to ignore.
