MOSCOW, 5th November. Russian envoy in Kabul expressed his hope to renew cooperation with NATO in Afghanistan.
Afghanistan should not become the field of political competition, Alexander Mantytsky warned during recent press conference.
Russian diplomat said that he is worried by selfish political competition of some countries and organizations in the Afghan field. ï¿½There are many speculations about rivalry between USA, Western countries and Fussia in Afghanistan, but they are wild guesses onlyï¿½ We have not any concealed goals. We donï¿½t want to fight with USA for Afghanistan. We want to continue our cooperationï¿½, Russian representative told.
On this occasion, Alexander Mantytsky also added that Russia will most likely help Afghanistan with helicopters for free to help Afghan people defend their country. Earlier Afghan president Ashraf Ghani asked Russia for aircrafts and handguns.
