MOSCOW, February 8 (Itar-Tass) – Russia will support any contacts, which will be aimed at facilitating national reconciliation in Afghanistan, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

After the talks with the Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Har on Wednesday, Lavrov said, “We will support any contacts for Afghanistan's reconciliation. This should be done in compliance with certain principles. The key principle is to do its best for the Afghans themselves to maintain contacts with the Taliban movement.”

“Another condition is that the Taliban movement should comply with the criteria put forth by the Afghan leadership – to give up violence, to recognize the Constitution and wreck any relations with Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups,” the Russian minister said.

“If the Taliban movement agrees tosuch approach, I do not see any reasons for Afghans themselves not to start national reconciliation,” Lavrov stressed.
