KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): The Kazakh minister for emergency situations discussed with President Hamid Karzai expansion of economic links between the two countries, the president's office said on Monday.

Needing only eight tonnes of wheat a year, Kazakhstan's production this year was more than 25 million tonnes, a statement from the Presidential Palace said.

A railway line with Turkmenistan would be constructed in the winter, paving the ground for the import of fabric and other items into Afghanistan, the statement added.

Flights between Afghanistan and Kazakhstan would be operated as soon as possible, said the Kazakh minister, leading a high-ranking delegation.

He conveyed the Kazakh president's condolences to Karzai over the assassination of High Peace Councilinfo-icon chairman Prof. Burhanuddin Rabbani. He called Rabbani's killing a huge loss for Afghanistan.
