Afghanistan settlement, the fight against terrorism and drug trafficking will be the main topics on the agenda of a quadrilateral summit in the southern Russian city of Sochi on Wednesday, a Kremlin aide said.

This is the second meeting of the presidents of Russia, Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The first quadrilateral summit was held in Tajik capital Dushanbe on July 30, 2009.

"Special attention is to be given to the problems of Afghanistan settlement, the fight against the threats of terrorism and drugs, and economic recovery and development in Afghanistan and its surrounding region," Sergei Prikhodko said.

The four leaders will also discuss the strengthening of regional cooperation to help stabilize the situation in Afghanistan and on the Afghan-Pakistani border, he said.

Further topics will include trade and economic cooperation and joint energy projects.

During the summit, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev will hold individual bilateral meetings with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari.

Medvedev will hold a separate bilateral meeting with Tajik President Emomali Rakhmon during Rakhmon's official visit to Russia on August 18-20, the Kremlin said.
