BEIJING, January 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Afghanistan was in the focus of Thursday’s meeting between the Russian, Indian and Chinese diplomats ahead of the withdrawal of NATO-led troops, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei told Itar-Tass.
Russia was represented by secretary of the Security Council Yevgeny Lukyanov.
