India has called a major meeting on November 10 to discuss the regional security situation after the return of the Taliban to power in Afghanistan. Apart from Iran, Russia, Central Asian countries Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Turkimenistan will also participate in this meeting. India’s National Security Advisor Ajit Doval will chair the meeting. Since the withdrawal of the Taliban, Pakistan’s hold in Afghanistan has strengthened and China is also making every effort to establish its dominance there. In such a situation, this meeting can prove to be a great opportunity for India to reinvent itself in Afghanistan.
On the sidelines of this meeting, NSA Ajit Doval will also hold bilateral talks with his counterparts from Russia, Iran, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Leaders of five countries including Russia are coming to New Delhi today to attend the meeting.
According to reports, Doval is likely to meet his Russian counterpart Nikolai Patrushev, Iran’s National Security Council chief Admiral Ali Shamkhani and Kazakhstan National Security Committee chairman Karim Massimov on November 10, ie tomorrow.
NSA Doval is expected to meet Tajikistan Security Council Secretary Nasrulo Rahmatjan Mahmuzda, Uzbekistan Security Council Secretary Viktor Makhmudov in Delhi this evening.
Let us inform that the NSA of Pakistan and China were also called in this meeting but both the countries decided not to participate in it. The invitation letters for the meeting were sent from the NSA secretariat only last month. India is in support of restoration of peace and stability in Afghanistan. It is being said that in this meeting, it will be discussed to make a strategy for this.
