Afghanistan.ru - 1.12.2015
MOSCOW, 30th November. Last week head of Afghan Meshrano Jirga Fazal Hadi Muslimyar visited Moscow and met with Valentina Matvienko, head of the Russian  Federation Council.

Security problems, particularly caused by Islamic State (IS) terroristic group, were the main topics of the discussion. Valentina Matvienko expressed concern about IS influence spread in Afghanistan and its partial merging with the Taliban group. She claimed that Russia is interested in strong and stable Afghanistan and will help the country to create effective army and police. Russia will also continue to supply Afghan army and aviation, she added.

In his turn, Fazal Hadi Muslumyar recognized that Afghanistan faces potent threats from terroristic groups backed by Pakistan. He thanked Russia for aid and condemned IS for killing innocent people in Afghanistan, Paris, Iraq, Syria and many other countries. Afghanistan is on the front line of fight against terrorism and narcotraffic, but it could be effective only provided international and regional effort consolidation, as his words were quoted by the Russian Federation Council internet portal.

Fazal Hadi Muslumyar also mentioned that Soviet Russia was the first country that recognized the independence of Afghanistan in the year 1919. He expressed gratitude for power plants, factories, residential estates and educational institutions built by USSR in Afghanistan and asked Russia for reconstruction of some buildings.

Finally, Afghan representative expressed his condolences to Russia about recent air crushes in Egypt and Syria.

Further cooperation of Russia and Afghanistan in the framework of SCO was also mentioned during the meeting. Valentina Matvienko stressed once more that Russia welcomes Afghanistan efforts in joining SCO.
