Deputy PM Hanafi calls current Afghan govt inclusive

MOSCOW. Oct 20 (Interfax) - Deputy Prime Minister Abdul Salam Hanafi of Afghanistan's interim government has described the country's current government as inclusive.

"The government of Afghanistan is already inclusive today. As you know, 500,000 people are engaged in maintaining the functioning of the country. Many of them worked in it previously," Hanafi told journalists in Moscow after being asked whether there are plans to form an inclusive government and whether there is an understanding as to what that will look like.

When commenting on the meeting on Afghanistan in Moscow, Hanafi said that "it was a very trustful meeting, a productive meeting."

"The Troika format is highly important to us. Russia is a very significant country in the region and plays a key role in maintaining security in the region," he said.
