    Moscow and Kabul will continue strengthening their military cooperation, Afghanistan's deputy foreign minister said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Kabul will ask Moscow to step up its military support to Afghanistan, Afghan Deputy Foreign Minister Hekmat Karzai said Thursday.

    "We will continue to strengthen our defense forces," Karzai said at a round table hosted by the Russian International Affairs Council.

    The deputy minister said one of the main goals of his Moscow visit was to address Russian partners and "attract them to provide military support to Afghanistan."

    "Not so long ago, we signed an agreement with Russia on partnership in the field of military-technical support, but we do not intend to stop here, we intend to go further," he said.
