NEW DELHI: On Friday, October 8, External Affairs Minister, S Jaishankar held a bilateral meeting with Afghan’s peace negotiations officer Abdullah Abdullah and extended India’s cooperation and support towards the maintenance of peace and sovereignty in Afghanistan.
The two leaders held discussions on the ongoing peace deals between the Afghanistan government and Taliban, that are being initiated to stabilize the war scenario of the Islamic republic country.
Soon after the meeting, Jaishankar resorted to Twitter and wrote, “Pleased to meet Chairman HCNR @DrabdullahCE. A good discussion on our bilateral cooperation and regional issues. Welcomed his insights and perspectives on recent developments. As a neighbor, India remains committed to peace, prosperity and stability in Afghanistan.”
The meeting comes following Afghan leader Abdullah’s conference with Prime Minister Narendra Modi which was held earlier on Thursday. In the meeting, the Indian PM had ensured full assistance to Afghanistan and it’s people, and help the country in building a more secure future.
Apparently, India has invested a sum of USD two billion to Afghanistan in the redevelopment and reconstruction activities of the country and therefore, has served as a helping hand in the prosperity of the neighboring nation.
