No change in India’s position on Afghanistan, it supports inclusive peace process: MEA


A day after Army Chief Gen. Bipin Rawat stated India cannot be left out of the “bandwagon” when a number of countries are reaching out to the Taliban, the External Affairs Ministry Friday said there is no change in the position on Afghanistan and New Delhi supports the process which is “inclusive” towards achieving peace.

External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar also said that India has made it “very clear” to the US that the peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan should be Afghan-owned, Afghan-led and Afghan-controlled.

He said this was conveyed during the meetings US President Donald Trump’s special Afghan envoy Zalmay Khalilzad had with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale. Read More
