Moscow would like to see the signing of a treaty on cooperation in Afghanistan between NATO and the Collective Security Treaty Organization, Russia's foreign minister said on Tuesday.
PARIS, March 11 (RIA Novosti) - Moscow would like to see the signing of a treaty on cooperation in Afghanistan between NATO and the Collective Security Treaty Organization, Russia's foreign minister said on Tuesday.

"Russia has long been urging our NATO partners to conclude a treaty on cooperation on all aspects of the Afghan problem between the CSTO and NATO," Sergei Lavrov said.

He added that an agreement was being impeded by the position of certain NATO member countries.

"That jeopardizes the interests of those who are risking their lives in Afghanistan," the minister said.

He said, in particular, that the transport facilities that France and Germany are using to provide supplies to their military servicemen could also be used by other countries that have their military contingents in Afghanistan.

The Collective Security Treaty Organization includes Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan.
