NSA meeting of 7 countries on Afghanistan begins in Delhi, emphasis on these issues


National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval said on Wednesday that the recent developments in Afghanistan have important implications not only for the people of that country but also for its neighbors and the region. In his inaugural address presiding over the meeting, Doval said that it is time for closer consultation, greater cooperation and coordination among regional countries on the Afghan situation.

Security officials from Russia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan are participating in the Delhi Regional Security Dialogue on Afghanistan. India is hosting the talks aimed at strengthening a common vision for practical cooperation in countering the growing threats of terrorism, extremism and drug trafficking after the Taliban capture Kabul. Doval said, “We are meeting today to discuss matters related to Afghanistan. All of us are keeping a close watch on developments in that country.


“These have important implications not only for the people of Afghanistan, but also for its neighbors and the region,” he said. Doval expressed hope that the discussions would be fruitful. “It is time for closer discussions between us,” he said.

Let us tell you that for this meeting, India had sent invitations only last month and also called Pakistan-China. However, both the countries refused to participate in the meeting.
