Russia, US, China invited to Afghanistan conference in Tashkent - Uzbek foreign minister

Russia, China, the United States and some other countries have received invitations to attend the international conference on peace and security in Afghanistan, Uzbekistan's Foreign Minister Abdulaziz Kamilov said on Friday after talks with Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.

"As for those who have already received invitations, we proceeded from an assumption that there are actual players that are rather deeply involved in this process and that could have a considerable influence on the further unfolding of events," Kamilov said.

"Therefore, we made a decision to invite Russia, China and the United States at a global level and Pakistan, Iran and India at a regional level," he said.

"Also, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Turkey received invitations along with some European states that had been willing to attend," the foreign minister said.
