Afghanistan’s land shouldn’t be allowed to export terror activity of any kind: India’s message to Taliban

As the Taliban prepared to officially unveil their government in Afghanistan, India Thursday reiterated that the Central Asian country’s land should not be used to export any kind of terror activity.

Briefing the press, the Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said the Indian government was not aware of details on the government formation in Afghanistan.

“We are not aware of any detail or nature of what kind of government could be formed in Afghanistan,” Bagchi said.

“I have no update on our meeting (with Taliban),” he added, in response to a question on India establishing first formal contact with the Taliban post the insurgent group’s takeover of Afghanistan.

When asked what was India’s roadmap on further meetings with the Taliban, the spokesperson stated: “It’s not a matter of yes and no. Our aim is that Afghanistan’s land shouldn’t be used for terror activity of any kind.”
