CIA chief, Russian NSA in Delhi for talks on Afghanistan
NEW DELHI: CIA chief Bill Burns flew into India on Tuesday for consultations on key security issues with national security adviser Ajit Doval and India’s security establishment even as the Taliban announced their interim go nment in Kabul. The conversation centred on te rorm, largely from Pakistan, as well as the way forward on Afghanistan.
The visit, which was under wraps, came on the same day the Russian NSA Nikolay Patrushev began his visit, also for consultations on Afghanistan. Burns is apparently going to Islbad from here on Wednesday.
Burns’ visit highlights the growing security concerns for India and US, both in the regional and global context as the Taliban swept into power in Kabul. On Tuesday, as the Taliban flew their flag in Panjshir valley, prests broke out in Kabul, Mazar-e-Sharif and even Zaranj ag inst the Taliban and what they said was “outside interference” by Pakistan. It is widely believed that the Taliban go nment is a deal struck between the various Taliban factions, brokered by the Pakistan ISI chief Faiz Hameed, who arrived in Kabul on Monday.
The Taliban go nment announced Sirajuddin Haqqani — designated global te rort — as interior minister. A number of the Taliban leadership are tagged by the UNSC as te rorts. In fact, India chairs the UNSC committee that will decide on the Taliban sanctions in the coming weeks.
India’s prime concern is the spike in infiltration by Pakistani groups into India.
Global designated te rorts are ministers ... In Afghanistan ..what an achievement ..
Trust russia always.
These americans will never learn. Not sure why burns should visit Pakistan?
This is permanent issue for India as Pakistan would like to use these groups for Kashmir and to threaten Indian economy. China will support Pakistan to put down India and get her projects done in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
China Russia USA need to realise Is mic Jihad Te rorm Violence is a serious Global Problem. Not just affecting Bharat.
There's no way India should let te rorm become mainstream in this region

See, India alone can do nothing in such a situation
Who cares who rules in Afghanistan as long as te rorts are kept out of India!
India was sidelined and sacrificed by the Americans, Russians, Chinese and Pak , when talks were going on. Pak made Americians see to it that India is not invited in talks held during the last 6 months. Now, India is the most affected country. India lost a lot, all due to America;s back-stabbing India.

Real game will start now. It appears, India has told US; remove sanctions on Russia and Iran, choke Talibans in Afghanistan with sanctions. EU is already going to take back GSP export concessions to Pak. US will sanction Pak. Within months, PAK and Afghanistan will fight among themselves and dest yed.
Time to break pakistan into 4 pieces.
You can't trust Americans. Their only purpose is to sell wons to highest bidder. They sell wons to dic ors and everybody else..

The go nment has been formed in Afghanistan at last by the designated TERRORIST S. NOW the go nment of Afghanistan is of the Te rorts, by the Te rorts and for the Te rorts . It is not for,by or of the people. The world leaders should demand for referendum so the people their own govt.
阿富汗新政府最终被指定为恐 怖分子。阿富汗政府是 分子的政府，为分子服务，它不属于阿富汗人民，也不为人民服务。世界领导人应该要求全民公投，让阿富汗人民选出自己的政府。
Russia is India's true friend tested by time.
The time has come..take back pok n GB..thereby cutting the pak chinki porus border used...this will get india closer to Afghanistan..
Any move by pakistan to up the Kashmir issue must be brutally responded to . For India this is the best possible opportunity to deal with terror activities emanating from pakistan .
Pappu is busy crying as nobody visits him.
