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.
“Further development of the situation in Afghanistan will have an impact on stability in the region. China jointly with other countries is ready to take part in the peaceful settlement and maintain security and stability in the region,” Hong Lei said.
“Beijing supports Afghanistan’s independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the diplomat said.
The withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan is planning to be ended by the end of 2014.
