“It would be possible to work out the issue of resuming the activities of the SCO-Afghanistan contact group, which was created at one time to work with Afghan partners,” Putin said.

Also, at a meeting of the Council of Heads of State of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the President of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev, proposed creating a SCO hub in Alma-Ata to deliver international aid to Afghanistan.
