Afghanistan to seal agreement with Russia to import gas and oil


Afghanistan to seal agreement with Russia to import gas and oil

Kabul, Aug 27 (Prensa Latina) The Afghan government on Saturday said it will soon strike a deal with its Russian counterpart over business matters and the import of Russian oil and gas, Tolo News reported.

According to the Afghan Commerce and Industry Minister Nooruddin Azizi, the Afghan technical teams visited Moscow to finish details of the agreement, taking into account the international sanctions imposed on Moscow.

Since most Russian and Afghan banks are affected by sanctions, it is likely that the payments will go through a third country that he has not specified, Azizi added.

According to reports, Russia and Afghanistan already trade a total of roughly $200 million in goods annually. Afghanistan already imports most of its food and oil from Russia.

Such trade has been affected in recent months in the wake of the Russia-Ukraine war.
