US building military base in Afghanistan near Iran border

Emal Feizi later denied Carney’s claims and said Washingt

The United States is building a military base in Afghanistan near the border with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The base is being built in an area known as Chahlang in Afghanistan’s Farah Province. The site of the construction is three kilometers from the Iranian border.

According to information obtained the US forces have already constructed a communications tower and dug some channels in the ground at the site of the base.

On Thursday, however, White House Spokesman Jay Carney said that Washington “does not seek permanent military bases in Afghanistan.”

Emal Feizi later denied Carney’s claims and said Washington has even chosen some cities for establishing the bases.
