Afghanistan is a major issue in the summit, Medvedev said while participating in the SCO Summit which started on Friday in the Uzbekistan's capital of Tashkent in calling on member states to strive for Afghanistan's development economically and socially.
Expressing that there are positive developments around the world despite problems, he gave the recent deal on Iran's nuclear program as an example.
