Russia does not rule out the introduction of peacekeeping forces in Afghanistan under the U.N. aegis, Russian defence minister Sergei Ivanov said in Dushanbe on Friday. However, he pointed out, "it is necessary to thoroughly study their status, their future activity and the aim of their introduction there".
