India Begs Karzai To Let Her Maintain Her Pasture & Presence in Afghanistan

Gazoo Notes: India is desperately trying to maintain her pasture and presence in Afghanistan after the US leaves. Indians are caught in quagmire in that they see their, RAW personal loose lives by Talibans, blow of $1.2B investments in setting up terror cells to train and send suicide bombers to Pakistan. Eight Indian consulates, which is actually occupied by RAW agents, will become ghost offices owing to no need since RAW will be trampled by Talibans. At the end of the day, Talibans will always side with Pakistani ummah. Ameen

Read on brother and sisters. Mr. Singh is desperately trying to save face from his constituents.

India offers strong support to Afghan president

NEW DELHI: India offered its unambiguous support to Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Monday as the embattled Afghan leader comes under increasing international pressure over his plan to include some Taliban leaders in reconciliation talks to end the nearly nine-year-old war in Afghanistan.
An estimated 1,400 Afghans representing Afghanistan's myriad of ethnic, regional and political factions are scheduled to gather for a so-called ''peace jirga'' next month to reach a national consensus for talking with the Taliban insurgents.


Although India has deep reservations about what have come to be known as the differentiation between ''good Taliban'' and ''bad Taliban,'' Prime Minister Manmohan Singh assured Karzai about India's support.


''I conveyed to President Karzai our deep admiration for his courageous leadership in difficult times and our support to the government and people of Afghanistan,'' Singh said, reading a prepared statement to reporters following the meeting.


Singh's unstinting backing for Karzai, despite New Delhi's misgivings about talking to the Taliban, stems from India's fears that a Taliban comeback in Kabul could give rival Pakistan enormous influence in Afghanistan as well as undo nearly a decade of development and reconstruction work that India has been carrying out in the war torn country.


On Monday, Karzai reiterated his position that Afghanistan's future had to be decided by the people of Afghanistan ''in keeping with the principles of national sovereignty, independence and noninterference in internal affairs.''


New Delhi appeared to support his position.
''India believes that this process should be led and owned by the Afghan people,'' Singh told Karzai during the talks in New Delhi.


Karzai, who arrived in the Indian capital early Monday for talks with Indian leaders, also discussed recent attacks on Indians working on development projects in Afghanistan.
Singh said his talks with Karzai, which took place at the Indian prime minister's residence, had also focused on terrorism and that the Afghan leader had promised ''all possible measures for the security of Indians in Afghanistan.''


Earlier, at a meeting with the Indian president, Karzai assured Pratibha Patil that the deep relations between the two countries would continue despite the attacks on Indian targets. ''Nothing will prevent the friendship and partnership from continuing between the two nations,'' according to an Afghan government statement issued in Kabul.


This is Karzai's first visit to India since his re-election as president in 2009.


Early Tuesday, Karzai is scheduled to leave for Bhutan for a summit of leaders of the South Asian Association of Regional Cooperation, or SAARC, which includes leaders from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, the Maldives, Bhutan and Bangladesh.

Feel it...

Correction:
India has 1 Embassy and 4 Consulates in Afghanistan.

1. And i think it is in everyones interest that Afghan children go to schools rather than madrassas.

2. Do you really believe that India can be involved in suicide bombings? Isn't the motivation for such bombings lie in Islam, and how can we as non muslims influence muslims to kill fellow muslims?:boggled:

This is indeed an area of concern for Pakistan. Afhanistan was never a good neighbour to us, infact when Pakistan applied to be accepted as full member of United nations in 1947, Afghansitan was the only country in the world who opposed it. (just a lesson from history for our friends here). In response, we were never a good neighbour to them either!!!!

USSR (now Russia) intervention in 1979 and resulting proxy war our army fought in Afghanistan, in excahnge of few dollars and plots in USA for sones of army generals!!) further complicated the issue. Creation of Taliban, daily interference in Afghan political and administrative affairs, in form of Gulbadeen Hikmat yaar or Mulla Haqqani or Mulla Rabbani etc. from our forces and agencies didnt help our cause either.

No matter what people think, Majority of common Afghani people hate Pakistan from the bottom of their heart. Pakistan will need to build these broken bridges by contnuous and honest efforts, it wont be an overnight change. we need to work hard to win hearts.
