BRUSSELS, April 25 (Itar-Tass) —— A decision on the expansion of cargo transits for NATO forces in Afghanistan via Russia is a political one and it will be taken in a due manner, the Chief of General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, General Nikolai Makarov said Wednesday.
"The problem of NATO cargo transits to the international contingent in Afghanistan via Russiawas discussed Wednesday at the session of the Russia-NATO Council," he said. "That's a political problem and it'll be settled at the political level later this year."
Russia and NATO plan to agree on a broad 'return' transit of cargoes that will make the solution of logistical problems involved in the withdrawal of NATO forces from Afghanistan much easier.
NATO member-states are expected to endorse a schedule for the pullout of troops of the U.S.-led coalition from Afghanistan at a summit in Chicago May 21 and May 22.
