“Russia considers the prospects for renewing a helicopter project and other forms of cooperation with NATO and the US on Afghanistan,” Zamir Kabulov the Russian Foreign Ministry’s director of the Second Asian Department was quoted as saying by Sputnik International today.

"Common sense favors this. And not only the Americans, but also other NATO member should review it," Kabulov told RIA Novosti in an interview published Monday.
Apart from donor conferences, terrorism-related issues in Afghanistan should be addressed politically, economically, militarily as well as technically, Kabulov said.
