Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday spoke to his old ally Russia on the issue of Afghanistan. He has had talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin for about 45 on this issue. This conversation between the heads of the two countries on this issue is very important. This is because Russia has not only supported the Taliban but has also said that their regime will be better than the Afghan government.
Let us tell you that the Taliban captured Kabul on 15 August. Since then there has been an atmosphere of chaos. Many other countries, including India, are making it their priority to evacuate their citizens from there safely. Meanwhile, the Taliban has said that India can complete the development works started in Afghanistan. He has assured that the Taliban will not harm any foreigner.
India has so far brought back hundreds of its citizens. At the same time, India’s talks about Taliban are also going on with America, Britain. Indian Foreign Minister S Jaishankar recently spoke to the US Secretary of State on this issue. Apart from this, the issue has also been discussed between the National Security Advisors of both the countries. The CCS meeting has also been held twice under the leadership of PM Modi on the situation in Afghanistan.
Let us tell you that India has not yet clarified its stand on the Taliban. However, India has made it clear that it does not believe what the Taliban have said. Significantly, during the last two decades, India has invested crores for the development of Afghanistan. Clouds of crisis are hovering over this investment in the presence of the Taliban.
