DUSHANBE, September 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia hopes the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan will fulfil its obligations, President Vladimir Putin told a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) on Friday.

“Afghanistan is the problematic part of the region. Yesterday, we had an opportunity to meet with Afghanistan’s president to talk,” he said.

“Russia is for the soonest finalizing of the election process,” Putin said. “We continue watching closely transfer of responsibilities for the order to Afghanistan’s authorities.”

“Our position is that the International Security Assistance Force should carry out the obligation vested by the UN, and extended foreign military presence will be the basis of a new mandate,” the Russian president said.
