Russian and US envoys will discuss the further supply of Russian helicopters to Afghanistan on the sidelines of the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly, Russian Izvestia daily said today."The United States said it was ready to invest several billion dollars in the establishment of the Afghan Air Force. Yet it is trying to substitute Russian helicopters with ones made in the US. If this is really so, we have nothing to discuss," the special representative of the Russian President for Afghanistan and Director of the Foreign Ministry's Second European Department, Zamir Kabulov," Mr Izvestia said."However, if the United States is ready to resume successful cooperation with Russia, we may consider formats for it. I mean, we are ready to sell if Washington is ready to buy Russian helicopters for the Afghan government," the newspaper quoted Kabulov as saying."Russia is open to a dialogue on the Afghanistan problem," he said.The Afghan government was buying Russian helicopters, primarily Mil Mi-35, and the United States was fully covering the expenses before the West imposed sanctions on Moscow, the newspaper said. All military-technical contacts between Moscow and Kabul came to a halt after Russia-US relations deteriorated, it said.UNI XC PY SNU 1659
