Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday expressed hope that the international cooperation on Afghanistan peace will yield positive results.

“We are certainly concerned about Middle East issues, as well as everything related to Iran’s nuclear program and North Korea. We are closely following developments in Afghanistan,” Putin said in an interview with Mir TV channel.

“By the way, in this connection we continue rather fruitful cooperation with many countries, including the United States who has been facing a certain amount of strain there, maintaining the situation in Afghanistan” Putin added.

He said that Moscow was making its own contribution to efforts to resolve the Afghan issue and expressed hope that international cooperation “will produce positive results.”

Putin made the remarks ahead of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence-Building Measures in Asia, an inter-governmental forum for enhancing cooperation towards promoting peace, security and stability in Asia. The two-day conference will begin in Tajikistan on June 14.
