Keeping in mind that the Afghan side will provide the planning and construction of secondary and offsite structures, the general construction work and provision of a labor force for the installation work for the radio station, and also its subsequent operation.

The expenses of Soviet organizations come to about 10 million rubles; it is proposed they be paid by granting the DRA a credit under the conditions specified in USSR Council of Ministers Decree Nº 1018-291 of 14 November 1979.
