Former Afghan president Hamid Karzai, speaking at Moscow intra-Afghan dialogue on the occasion of the centenary of the Russian-Afghan relations, called for Russia to play a greater role in the Afghan peace process.
“Afghanistan has good relations with Russia. From the Afghan people’s point of view, having an inclusive relation has many advantages and we want a friendly relationship with all countries, especially the countries of the region and the neighboring countries,” he said at the meeting.

Mr Karzai called for presence and active role of powerful countries like China and Russia in establishing peace in the region and Afghanistan.

Taliban representatives headed by Mullah Baradar and some Afghan politicians have attended Moscow meeting. Russia has previously hosted intra-Afghan meetings between Taliban and Afghan politicians.
