Russia allows NATO armored vehicle transit to Afghanistan

Russia will allow NATO to transit armored vehicles to Afghanistan through its territory, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday. “The eased transit regulations have been extended to armored vehicles with anti-mine protection,” Lavrov said after talks with his Afghan counterpart Zalmay Rasul in Moscow. The new deal was sealed at the landmark Russia-NATO summit in Lisbon last Saturday. It will curtail NATO’s dependence on unstable Pakistan as a transit country.
