Moscow values its dialogue with Prince Karim Aga Khan IV, the current Imam of Nizari Ismaili Muslims, and expects to discuss different issues, including the problems of Afghanistan, with him, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

“We appreciate the assessments that you have outlined to us not only on the Afghan problem, but also on other contemporary problems. Your insightful view of an experienced man is highly important to us,” Lavrov said at a meeting with Prince Karim Aga Khan IV.

“We see that you are guided not only by the wish to safeguard the interests of Ismailis, regardless of where they live, but also by the wish to help solve quite dangerous problems that have been accumulating in the international situation for the past ten years,” he said.

“We expect to have a useful discussion,” he said.

The prince, for his part, said that cooperation with Russia was important as far as the situation in Central Asia was concerned.

Our cooperation is exceedingly important not only for the community of Nizari Ismaili Muslims, but also for Central Asia as a whole, and today the sides are establishing joint institutions that will play an enormous role with regard to developments under way in the whole of Central Asia, he said.
