KABUL (Pajhwok): Russia, China and Pakistan showed their interest to provide humanitarian aid to Afghanistan at a summit in Moscow, but Russia says recognizing a new Afghan government is not on the agenda.

The Moscow summit on Afghanistan is expected today and representatives from 11 countries, including Afghanistan, are attending the huddle. A delegation led by Mulavi Abdul Salam Hanafi, Deputy Prime Minister of Afghanistan, has arrived in Russia.

Representatives of Russia, China and Pakistan met in Moscow on Tuesday and discussed political, security and post-conflict related issues in Afghanistan.

According to reports, the three countries discussed security threats and expressed their joint intention to provide emergency humanitarian and economic assistance to Afghanistan.

Russia expects the Taliban would honor their promises, particularly in forming a coalition government, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said.

“Recognition of the Taliban is not a topic of discussion at the moment, but we are in touch with them, telling them to keep their promises when they are in power,” he said.

ZabihullahMujahid, deputy information and culture minister, told a Russian media outlet that Afghan government officials would seek economic and political support in Moscow summit.
