MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia will continue supporting legitimate Afghanistan authorities and developing military technical-ties with the government in Kabul, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Monday.

"We support the Afghan government in its efforts to resolve the conflict in the country," Lavrov said in a statement.

"We will continue developing military-technical, economic and humanitarian cooperation with Kabul," the minister stressed.

Lavrov’s statement was timed to the Islamic New Year, which marks the start of a new lunar cycle, according to the Islamic calendar.

Lavrov pledged that Russia would attend a Brussels conference on Afghanistan on October 4-5, which is expected to bring together over 70 donor countries and 20 international organizations.

Afghanistan is in a state of political and social instability, with extremist organizations and Taliban insurgents continuing to pose a threat to civilians and state institutions.
