Pentagon sees India’s role as positive in Afghanistan

US Department of Defence or the Pentagon sees and appreciates India’s role as positive in Afghanistan — as the “largest donor” to the country.

Highlighting the “traditionally” strong ties India has with Afghanistan, Pentagon in its report on Afghanistan said, “The Indian government does not support the Taliban politically and continues to support the Afghan government” and “India has reiterated its support for an Afghan-led, Afghan-owned, and Afghan-controlled peace process.”

On the issue of counter-terror, the report said, “India works with regional state actors, the Afghan Government and Afghan power brokers to prevent transnational terrorist safe havens, and maintain access to Afghanistan as a gateway to Central Asian markets.”
