MINSK, 15 October (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko, presiding at the CIS summit, has supported the initiative to send humanitarian aid to Afghanistan under the aegis of the CIS, BelTA informs.
After the speeches of the CIS leaders the Belarusian president thanked his counterparts for the productive dialogue. “In your speeches you have made very important and constructive proposals aimed at the further improvement of our interaction in the CIS,” he said.
The head of state invited the CIS Executive Committee to analyze all the initiatives and to develop an action plan if necessary. For example, the leader of Kyrgyzstan suggested organizing the delivery of humanitarian aid to Afghanistan on behalf of the CIS. “This is a good proposal. In my opinion, we need not only to mull it over, but also to look for ways to implement this proposal,” the Belarusian leader said.

He expressed concern over the current situation in Afghanistan and said it was important to provide support to this state. “This will contribute to the restoration of stability in the country,” Sadyr Japarov is convinced.
