ST. PETERSBURG, November 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Vladimir Putin urged the member states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) to help Afghanistan cerate its own security forces.
“As for Afghanistan, we share the position that the Afghan people and government should ensure security, and the government should have the necessary resources and means for that,” Putin said at a meeting of the SCO Council of the Heads of Government on Monday, November 7.
“I think it is our common task is to support the government of Afghanistan in building its national security service and police force,” he added.
Speaking of the “Arab spring”, the prime minister said that Western countries had supported the regimes in those countries first and then revolutions there.
“These conceited world power supported the previous regimes in North Africa, but what is interesting is that they supported revolutions too. That’s how strange the world is, but interesting,” Putin said.
