MOSCOW, April 13 (Itar-Tass) —— The foreign ministers of Russia, India and China are ready for the joint work on Afghanistan, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after a meeting of the ministers of the three countries in Moscow on Friday.
“We agreed to build up joint efforts in the struggle against extremism, terrorism and counteraction to drugs,” he said. “Moreover, most of these cases originated in Afghanistan,” he said.
