Pakistan turning to China to offset Indian influence in Afghanistan: US Intelligence Committee

WASHINGTON: The US intelligence community has informed Congress that Pakistan does not want heavy Indian influence in Afghanistan and will likely turn to China to offset New Delhi's sway in Kabul, the media reported on Monday, quotes Times of India.

During a recent hearing on Afghanistan at the Senate Armed Services Committee, US intelligence chiefs assessed the situation in the war-torn country, and discussed Pakistan's interests in Kabul.

The Trump administration is finalising a new policy for Afghanistan and the ongoing consultations in the White House have generated much interest in the US media and think-tanks.
