“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.
