India, US, others agree Afghanistan needs representative, inclusive govt with no place for terror
NEW DELHI: India and US along with some other countries which participated Wednesday in a briefing cum conversation with US deputy secretary of state Wendy Sherman agreed that it was important to work for as representative and as inclusive a go nment as possible in Afghanistan, kee in mind the interests of women, minorities and safety and security of diplomatic personnel.
Another general sentiment to emerge from the talks, which saw participation by foreign secretary Harsh Shringla, was that no part of Afghanistan should turn into a terror safe haven and that te rorm was being exported to Afghanistan from outside.
While thanking the US for the smooth evacuation of Indian diplomats, Shringla underlined India’s main priority that it needed urgently to evacuate around 400 Indian nationals, and also Afghan nationals with ties to India, for which it wanted commercial flight operations to restart as soon as possible in Kabul and also continued access to the airport. He sought US help in getting Indians to access the airport for reopening the commercial terminal. The Indian nationals still in Afghanistan chose to stay back despite repeated advisories by the embassy in the past couple of months about the looming security threat.
A day after India evacuated its diplomats from Kabul in a complicated operation facilitated by the Americans, the Taliban told ToI they never asked India to withdraw diplomats and that they remained committed to providing a safe environment for all embassies. While the Indian go nment acknowledges that the Taliban finally allowed the evacuation to take place, offi al sources said the evacuation was made possible only after contact with the US at 4 different levels.
Apart from NSA Ajit Doval and foreign minister S Jaishankar, who spoke to their counterparts Jake Sullivan and Antony Blinken respectively, Shringla was in touch with Sherman and Indian authorities here also pursued the matter with the US embassy. An offi al source said that the evacuation probably wouldn’t have taken place as smoothly as it did without support from the US, whose forces remain in control of the air traffic control and technical area of the Kabul airport.
除了国家安全局的Ajit Doval和印度外交部长苏杰生分别与他们的同级Jake Sullivan和Antony Blinken交谈外，Shringla还与Sherman保持联系，印度当局也在与美国大使馆调查此事。一名官方消息人士称，如果没有美国的支持，撤离行动可能不会像现在这样顺利。美国军队仍然控制着喀布尔机场的空中交通管制。
Its a mess created by US & now they will try to pull India into it. Play smart India!
THIS TIME TALIBAN ARE DIFFERENT, THEY HAVE LEARNT THEIR LESSONS. ITS THEIR COUNTRY , LET THEM GOVERN IT IN PEACE. INDIA OR U.S HAS NO BUSINESS TO POKE THEIR NOSES IN IT. DO AFGHANS SAY ANYTHING ON THE INDIAN GOVT???
The world is clearly heading towards its destruction Covid 19 , Climate change , Te rorm, Re gious Extremism the signals are very clear may God bless us all with wisdom .
India ran pretty fast. And now of course it'll give advice. In this respect it reminds me of the dog that runs when spooked and starts barking once it has reached a safe distance.
WITHOUT INVOLVING THE TALIBANS IN THE DISCUSSION ANY AGREEMENT IS NOT WORTH THE PIECE OF PAPER IT'S WRITTEN ON
Modi didn't show the courage to send Indian army to support Afghan army when they were fighting with Taliban and now beating the drum it's too late now
Russia, NATO countries and US all went to get oil gas gold daimonds etc….. but ended up in loosing self respect
Hindus and Sikhs should be included in the new Afghanistan go nment.
Keep away from US on the Afghan issue please . See , what they have done with the Philipes and Vietnam !
Has Covid left Afghanistan? where has it gone now?
India has become US Imperialists agent.Before it was Non aligned .Now under the leadership of Modi it has become agent provocateur for USA.All the trouble with China that India has presently are the products of that India following their USA bosess instruction of starring up border dispute with China.
Biden will cut and run at the first available opportunity. Biden has no guts or foresight to see the larger picture, as was the case with other Democrats Presi nt. Things could have been different under Trump.
I have never seen such stupidity. India has nothing to do with this. It is a US created crisis and let them manage it on their own. Can Indian po itician act smart once ? This is a TRAP !
world should unite to fight ag inst them,only if they try to spread their barbarism beyond their territory.
AND KABUL NEARLY 80 YRS AFTER DUNKIRK; WHO SAYS HISTORY DOESN'T REPEAT ITSELF
TALIBAN IN AFGHANISTAN WITHOUT TERRORISM MUST BE JOKING!
When Taliban is committed to keep the diplomats safe, give them a chance. If they deviate, air strikes are always an option. Let Taliban decide it's own fate.
Afganistan just a country, the real issue is one re gion
If Afgh is not rich in minerals no country would pay attention to it i
Will Taliban care for what US and India seek
