Afghanistan’s neighbours have biggest stake in its stability says interior minister

India and Afghanistan today teamed up to deny a claim by Pakistan's foreign minister that Islamabad had been offered custody of a wanted terrorist in exchange for the release of former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav.

The continuing Indo-Afghan bonhomie comes as a strong message to Pakistan which has been masterminding terror activities both in India and Afghanistan.

Asserting that his presence in Kabul along with Mattis reflects their commitment to Afghanistan, Stoltenberg said, "Corruption is a serious concern and that thousands of civilians have lost their lives in the Afghan conflict over the years, We count on the Afghan government to make good on its commitments on key reforms' and that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation supports peace process".

Last Monday, the Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat said that India might resort to carry out another surgical strike if necessary as it did in September previous year in Pakistani-administered Kashmir.

Following the meeting between Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and US Defence Secretary James Mattis, where the US again called for increased participation of India in the Afghanistan efforts, Sitharaman highlighted the contributions India is making for Afghanistan development while maintaining that Indian troops would not be sent to Afghanistan.

Asif's comment are being seen as an attempt to deflect the latest criticism of Pakistan by United States and other countries for its support and shelter to terror organisations, while simultaneously conveying the role of Indian Intelligence in backing terrorist from the Afghan soil.

A cricket legend who may be Pakistan's future prime minister says the United States should stop trying to destroy the Taliban and instead talk to them with help from Pakistan.

Zakaria said that India continues with "unprovoked ceasefire violations at LOC" and the working boundary, targeting civilians, deliberately.

"What Pakistan is not prepared to do is to fight the Afghan war on Pakistan's soil".

"As far as peace in Afghanistan is concerned, our position has been much formed while we have the legitimate right to defend our country, to defend our people", Abdullah added.

The Pakistan Foreign Minister said the current jihadis in his country were all nurtured by America during the war against the Soviets.

To a question about Saudi Arabia's interest in joining the China Pakistan Economic Corridor, he said: "CPEC is a flagship project of One-Belt-One-Road and is envisaged to bring prosperity to the region and beyond".

He had said that the conclusive confessions made by Commander Kulbushan Jhadev validated Indian state sponsored terrorism and terror financing against Pakistan. On the security front, the minister said through a relentless military and law enforcement campaign, the terrorists are put on the run.
