India is frustrated over the landmark deal between US and Afghan Taliban
New Delhi - India is frustrated over the landmark deal between US and Afghan Taliban leaving Delhi isolated.
As US-Taliban sign a historic peace deal, India has reacted cautiously to the development reiterating its earlier stand of lending consistent support to bring peace and stability to the region.
The Ministry of External Affairs in a statement said, "India`s consistent policy is to support all opportunities that can bring peace, security and stability in Afghanistan; end violence; cut ties with international terrorism; and lead to a lasting political settlement through an Afghan-led, Afghan-owned and Afghan controlled process."
MEA Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said India has noted that the peace deal has been welcomed by the entire political spectrum in Afghanistan.
"As a contiguous neighbour, India will continue to extend all support to the Government and people of Afghanistan in realising their aspirations for a peaceful, democratic and prosperous future where the interest of all sections of Afghan society are protected," he said.
Meanwhile, the Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla, who is on a two-day visit to Afghanistan, congratulated the people of Afghanistan and its government on the conduct of the fourth presidential elections and the declaration of the final results.
Noting the recent developments and hope for peace generated by recent developments, he reiterated the need for all sections of the political leadership to work together in the pursuit of sustainable peace and security for the people of the country.
