Moscow expecting no breakthroughs in cooperation with U.S. on Afghanistan - Kabulov

NEW YORK. Sept 21 (Interfax) - Moscow is not expecting any breakthroughs in the interaction with the United States on Afghanistan but is glad to have had the first contact with the Donald Trump Administration's representative for that country, Zamir Kabulov, Special Representative of the Russian President for Afghanistan, said.

"No breakthroughs are being expected," Kabulov said, answering the question from an Interfax correspondent after he met with Alice Wells, Acting Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs, and Acting Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Moscow is glad though there is a person who may be contacted in regard to Afghanistan issues, Kabulov said, adding that he has invited his U.S. colleague to visit Moscow.
