New Delhi Dec 06 (ANI): Uzbekistan Security Council Secretary Viktor Makhmudov on December 06 called on Asian countries to coordinate efforts to ensure regional security and expansion of practical cooperation on Afghanistan. In the opening remarks at the 1st India-Central Asia Meeting of National Security Advisors in Delhi, Viktor Makhmudov said,
“Today's agenda is important to coordinate efforts to ensure regional security and expansion of practical cooperation on Afghanistan. We should not allow Afghanistan to be isolated and leave it on its own to deal with social, economic and humanitarian crisis.” “Because this will lead to increasing poverty in the region. Peace in Afghanistan is important as it also has new strategic possibilities, and opportunities and it can be an area of growth and transport corridors and markets in this area,” he added.
