MOSCOW, February 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Relations between Russia and Afghanistan gain momentum, presidential special envoy for Afghanistan Zamir Kabulov told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“The parties are holding an active political dialogue at the high level – at the level of presidents and foreign ministers. As for economic components, it lags behind the political one,” said Kabulov, who is also director of the Russian Foreign Ministry 2nd Asia Department.
“There are few landmark economic contracts and agreements. It is clear because Afghanistan is a country at war. There are no conditions for security and there are risks for making investments in the country,” the high-ranking diplomat said.
“However, there are joint projects where we maintain cooperation. For example, Russia’s Tekhnopromexport should end the reconstruction and modernisation of the Nagly hydropower plant near Kabul. Another Russian company is completing the reconstruction and modernisation of the Kabul homebuilding factory. These are very important projects for Afghanistan,” he said.
