Medvedev will hold talks with Karzai on January 21

(RIA Novosti) - Karzai said he was looking forward to visiting Moscow to hold talks on Russian-Afghan ties, including joint efforts in the fight against drugs and supplying humanitarian aid to Afghanistan.

In mid-November, during the NATO summit in Lisbon, the Russian government approved an agreement with NATO allowing the alliance to carry supplies to and from Afghanistan via Russian territory.

The new deal on the so-called reverse transit allows NATO to ship armored vehicles and other equipment from Afghanistan back to Europe by the same route through Central Asia and Russia
