“I suggested to him: if you want, come to Moscow, and we can talk in a bilateral format. But now, since we are talking about a meeting of the expanded troika in Islamabad, it may make sense to meet there immediately. This is logistics,” said Kabulov.

Recently Pakistan proposed to hold a meeting of the “expanded” troika on Afghanistan in the second half of November. 

“The West is ready to come, I am ready to accept it, this is a technical issue. If it is convenient for him to fly to Russia, and then to Islamabad, let him choose,” Kabulov said.
