NEW DELHI - Afghan Taliban is directly undermining international peace and security, said Sushma Swaraj , the Indian Foreign Minister on Monday at a  meeting on terrorism with the Russian and Chinese foreign ministers in New Delhi.
 
"While discussing terrorism, I put across my view that a significant rise in acts of terrorism by terrorist organizations like the Taliban, Daesh, al-Qaeda, and directly undermine international peace and security and endangers ongoing efforts to strengthen the global economy ensuring sustainable growth and development. India strongly recommends a comprehensive policy for dealing with global terrorism,” Swaraj said.
 
Swaraj discussed global security, regional connectivity and the Middle East with her Russian and Chinese counterparts, Sergei Lavrov and Wang Yi.
 
In the meantime, Lavrov also said: “We compared notes on the situation in Afghanistan, in Iraq, Yemen, Libya. On the Syrian settlement, we stand for a swift launch of the national reconciliation process."
 
"When it comes to regional issues, we shared our assessments on the situation on the Korean Peninsula. It is quite tense and we believe it is unacceptable to intensify the military tension and confrontation. It can be transferred from the propaganda stage to the military stage. We highlighted that there is no alternative to the political and diplomatic solution. As you know, there is a roadmap sponsored by Russia and China,” Lavrov said.
 
Wang also said that at the meeting they discussed Afghanistan, the Middle East and other international regional issues.
 
"We will promote connectivity building of the Eurasian continent following the principle of extensive consultation, joint contribution, and shared benefits, committing to a policy on infrastructure, trade, financial and people-to-people connectivity, to ensure that our connectivity initiatives complement instead of contradicting each other, and supplement instead of conflict with each other,” Wang said.
