Afghanistan sent an official request to Russia for the delivery of helicopters to Kabul, Deputy Foreign Minister Hekmat Karzai said Thursday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The deputy foreign minister is on an official visit to Moscow, noting that one of the main goals of his trip was to urge Russian partners to provide military support to Afghanistan.

"We sent a request to the Russian Security Council for expanding cooperation [in the military field], including for the deliveries of helicopters to Kabul," he said.

Earlier in the day, the deputy minister said that Kabul would ask Moscow to step up its military support to Afghanistan.

Afghanistan is in a state of political and social turmoil with violence drastically escalating in the country after Mullah Haibatullah Akhundzada was appointed a new Taliban leader. The situation is exacerbated by the rising activity of other terrorist groups, such as Daesh, outlawed in many states worldwide, including Russia.
