TEHRAN, December 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and Iran have agreed to step up cooperation on Afghanistan, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after talks with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif on Wednesday.
“We have considered the situation in Afghanistan and around it, especially in the context of the 2014 factor,” he said. “We want to contribute to close regional interaction on Afghanistan in order to help people of this country to overcome long-lasting difficulties.”
“A terrorist threat is not diminishing there,” Lavrov said. “It is in the interests of Russia and Iran to help our neighbors to overcome these threats and ensure a peaceful life. We have agreed to work towards achieving these goals through bilateral channels and within the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.
