As Afghanistan moves into real negotiations between the civilian Ashraf Ghani govt & the Taliban, India has made it clear that it has skin in the game. MEA Dr S. Jaishankar has issued a no-holds-barred warning to Taliban, making it clear that Afghan soil should not be used for...
..anti-India activities, the minorities should not be tormented and women should not be reduced into second-class citizens. Jaishankar himself addressed the “intra-Afghan” talks that began in Doha, Qatar on Sat. He conveyed that the peace process must be Afghan-led, Afghan...
..controlled, respect national sovereignty & territorial integrity of Afghanistan, promote human rights & democracy, ensure the interest of minorities, women & the vulnerable, effectively address violence across the country.”
This is the first time that India is strongly....
...asserting its role in rebuilding Afghanistan which has been facing the scourge of war for the past several decades. India knows that the Haqqani group, a leading Taliban faction has frequently targeted Indian assets in Afghanistan, including attacks on the Indian Embassy.
But Dr S Jaishankar’s warning against using the Afghan soil for anti-India activities makes it clear that New Delhi will not tolerate the Haqqani-ISI coalition in Afghanistan if it continues to target Indian interests and assets. India is making it clear that while the entire... marauded Afghanistan, it was Delhi that reconstructed the Afghan Parliament, built roads, power transmission lines, schools, libraries & even a cricket stadium, apart from training the Afghan military, doling out scholarships to Afghan students & making the war-torn... self-sufficient. In fact, with $3 billion in aid since 2001, India remains the largest South Asian donor to Afghanistan.
The level of India’s selfless devotion to the cause of post-war reconstruction in Afghanistan & Indian interests in the landlocked country make...
..New Delhi a natural stakeholder in Kabul’s progress towards a post-US withdrawal political reality. India has therefore taken the opportunity to put the Taliban in its place ahead of ground-breaking changes in Kabul.
