Defence Minister Peter MacKay, in Afghanistan spending Christmas with Canadian soldiers, says he is concerned about weapons “coming in from Iran” for the Taliban.
MacKay told reporters that he was concerned that Iran has been providing insurgents with improvised explosive devices.
Afghanistan has “very negative influences coming in from other countries — Pakistan, certainly Iran in particular,” he said.
“We’re very concerned that weapons are coming in from Iran, we’re very concerned these weapons are going to the insurgents and keeping this issue alive.”
David Wilkins, the U.S. ambassador to Canada, traveled with MacKay and Hillier during their trip.
