US, India adopt wait and watch approach to Taliban 2.0
WASHINGTON: Talks between the United States and India this week centering on salvaging the foreign policy wreckage in Afghanistan following the col pse of the Ashraf Ghani go nment backed by them have yielded no immediate substantial result aside from a cautious wait and watch approach towards the new Taliban dispensation in Kabul.
Beneath bland statements from offi als on both sides that their discussions touched on bilateral ties and the situation in Afghanistan lie efforts at coordinating response to ensure they are able to rescue hundreds of their nationals and their Afghan allies still stranded in Afghanistan, while maintaining some equity with the new re gie in Kabul.
India's foreign secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla met his US counterpart under secretary of state Wendy Sherman and later called on secretary of state Antony Blinken on Thursday to exchange nes on their preliminary outreach towards the Taliban 2.0 re gie amid small, encouraging signs that it could be a more reasonable avatar of the original.
印度外交秘书Harsh Vardhan Shringla周四会见了美国副国务卿温迪•谢尔曼，随后又呼吁国务卿安东尼•布林肯就双方与塔利班2.0*的初步接触交换意见。目前有少量令人鼓舞的迹象表明，这可能是原塔利班*更合理的化身。
Sherman, who is coordinating the US response to the ground situation and the unfolding humanitarian crisis tweeted that she discussed "shared priorities including coordination on Afghanistan, strengthening Indo-Pacific cooperation via the Quad, and addressing the climate crisis and the Covid-19 pandemic," with Shringla.
But there were no signs that either side is inclined to provide material support the so-called Panjshir resistance amid reports that its principals, including deposed vice-presi nt Amrullah Saleh had fled to neighboring Tajkistan, where India has two bases. Lack of support to the remnants of the Northern Alliance will extinguish the resistance and enable Taliban 2.0 to establish almost complete control over Afghanistan.
Taliban will show it's true colours of a global te rort organisation very soon, as soon as there priorities are under control. Within 1-year United Nations peacekeepers will have to re-enter Afghanistan to flush them out and install a peace following go nment.
Feku this is not bhajan or evm machine to get on with wait and watch action plan. Declare openly that TB is a dreaded te rorts flock and have no relationship with them whatsoever...
Actually America has lost very badly in Afghanistan. They now have no say there. Space occupied by China Russia who already negotiating various projects there
Actually the US has long overstayed in Afghanistan. Trump had invited India to partner militarily with the US in Afghanistan. What would have been the result today if India had taken a bigger role then it had is up for speculation.
But as of now we need to brace for impact since china has played a major role in the Taliban rise to power.
No projects for us in that hellhole.
USA is the most unreliable creature. it is not good to partner with them. If you want to partner then be aware that it is the nastiest country.
The United States and India are the two biggest jokes on Afghanistan.
Nightmare at least for India.
Is there any other choice or approach but wait and watch (and then suffer)?
RG and NAMO are both chu
India and US are waiting... the world is not waiting...
Only one option for India.Kick them out of the country. Today you show mercy on these people. Tomorrow these very people will carry out jihad in India.
we are known for wait and watch specialist...
Wait and watch has led to this population explosion in our country.
Taliban are on their way to becoming proes of Pak. India has to build resistance to this re gie through non Pashtuns.
Failure of foreign policy of modi
Taliban is not conventional army. They fight either to get victory or martyrdom according to their Is mic idealogy.. America nato USSR learnt this lesson. Now only Modi is left to take on taliban. China pak Iran Russia will never take panga with them as they already know the results
Taliban don't care for any country. If anyone wait and wTch and act they will disappear just like USA USSR etc.. Modi should have clear policy. Either accept or reject don't let America dictate to India
I love this diplomacy.
Taliban is slowly changing its colour like a chameleon. India just need to help northern alliance by transferring the million dollars, same money whatever it was going to invest in improving Afghanistan economic. India just need to exploit the weakness of Taliban.
Stay away from these animals, they and their re gion does not belong to this era
