International meetings of the secretaries of the security councils on the situation in Afghanistan should continue, said Nikolai Patrushev, secretary of the Russian Security Council. His words are reported by TASS.
During a meeting on security issues in Afghanistan, Patrushev noted that such meetings allow at a high level to discuss the whole range of problems that arise due to the situation in Afghanistan and make decisions on them. He noted that many countries have stepped up in terms of creating new formats of dialogues. The head of the RF Security Council called on the states not to duplicate each other’s work, but to supplement it.
He also expressed the opinion that the talks in New Delhi will give additional dynamism to the development of cooperation in the Afghan direction and contribute to the establishment of peace in the country.
During his speech, Patrushev noted that the mechanism of the Moscow format is quite significant, since “it allows coordinating efforts to promote an Afghan settlement, taking into account the new political conditions in this country.” He believes that the last meeting, held on October 20, has shown its effectiveness.
“The collective initiative voiced by its participating countries to convene an international donor conference will make it possible to take a step towards normalizing the situation in Afghanistan and, as a consequence, ensuring stability in the region,” the head of the RF Security Council stressed.
Iran, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan are participating in the Delhi Regional Dialogue.
Earlier it was reported that the United States declared the importance of interaction with the Russian Federation on stabilizing the situation in Afghanistan. Cooperation should play a positive role in the future of the country.
