KABUL, May 27 (Xinhua) -- The government of Afghanistan will ink long-term partnership agreement with China, Afghan Foreign Minister Zalmai Rasoul said Sunday. "Afghanistan would sign long-term partnership agreement with the People Republic of China and the agreement will probably be inked during President Hamid Karzai's participation at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit on June 6-7 in China,"Rasoul told a press conference.

He added that Afghanistan in the past had attended the SCO as a guest and it hoped to attend as an observer in the coming summit.

Afghanistan has already signed strategic and long-term partnership agreements with the United States, Britain, Germany, India, Italy and Australia.

The Afghan top diplomat said that his country wants to have close relations with SCO members and all the neighboring nations.
