C-in-C of the US Central Command General Tommy Franks has announced that America will maintain contacts with all anti-Taliban groups in Afghanistan. While appearing at a Tashkent press conference on Wednesday, Franks said that he had met a few leaders of the Afghan opposition at the Bagram air base to get a clearer understanding of the situation in Afghanistan. According to the general, he was also interested in the issue of co-operation between US special forces taking part in the anti-terrorist operation and anti-Taliban opposition units. Franks said that he had had an open and constructive conversation.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
