Russian, Chinese and Pakistani special envoys to Afghanistan held a meeting in Moscow on Tuesday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

"On October 19, a meeting of the special representatives of the Russian Federation, China and Pakistan for Afghanistan took place in Moscow. The participants exchanged views on common security threats and expressed joint interest in providing urgent humanitarian and economic assistance to Afghanistan," a Foreign Ministry statement said.

In a separate statement, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the US envoy could not take part in the meeting of Troika Plus comprising the US, Russia, China and Pakistan because the envoy was appointed just before the event.
