PM stresses on inclusive govt in Afghanistan, countering drugs & arms trafficking

New Delhi, Nov 10 (UNI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi emphasised on the need for an inclusive government in Afghanistan, zero-tolerance on Afghan territory being used by terror groups, countering drugs and arms trafficking and addressing the humanitarian crisis in that country, during the joint call on him by the NSAs of seven countries today.
The Heads of the National Security Councils of seven nations, who are in Delhi for the Regional Security Dialogue on Afghanistan hosted today by National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, paid a joint call on Prime Minister Modi after the conclusion of the Dialogue.
In their comments to the Prime Minister, the senior security officers from Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, expressed their appreciation of India's initiative in organising the Dialogue and of the quality of the exchanges. They also conveyed the perspectives of their respective countries on the Afghan situation, an official statement said.
Prime Minister Modi appreciated the participation of the senior dignitaries in the Delhi Security Dialogue despite the challenges posed by the pandemic.
He emphasised four aspects that countries in the region would need to focus on, in the context of Afghanistan: the need for an inclusive government; a zero-tolerance stance about Afghan territory being used by terrorist groups; a strategy to counter trafficking of drugs and arms from Afghanistan; and addressing the increasingly critical humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan.
Prime Minister Modi also expressed the hope that the Regional Security Dialogue would work to revive Central Asia's traditions of moderation and progressive culture, and counter extremist tendencies.
