On August 27, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov had a telephone conversation with President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani.

The officials discussed important current issues of bilateral cooperation with regard to an Afghan settlement, including a regular meeting of the Moscow format consultations on Afghanistan co-chaired by the two countries.

The President of the IRA, supporting in principle the idea of a Moscow meeting, proposed postponing it due to the need to develop Afghanistan’s consolidated position on this issue, taking into account the ongoing personnel changes in the leadership of the Afghan ruling bloc.

An agreement was reached to jointly work out a new date for the meeting through diplomatic channels.
