External Affairs Minister S.K. Jaishankar
Heart of Asia Conference: Ninth Heart of Asia Istanbul Process Ministerial Meeting is taking place under the regional effort ‘Istanbul Process’ on Security and Cooperation for a Sustainable and Peaceful Afghanistan.
External Affairs Minister Jaishankar said, ‘For a lasting peace in Afghanistan, we need a genuine’ dual peace ‘, that is, peace within Afghanistan and peace around Afghanistan. This requires the reconciliation of the interests of all within and around that country. If the peace process is to succeed, it is necessary to ensure that the negotiating parties are committed to reaching a political solution. ‘
Jaishankar also met Afghan President Ashraf Ghani before the conference began. Let us know that the Afghan government and the Taliban are negotiating directly with each other to end the 19-year-old war. Thousands of people have died in this war and many parts of Afghanistan have been devastated. India has been a major factor in the peace and stability of Afghanistan, which has already provided two billion dollars aid in reconstruction activities in the war-torn country.Also read- Indian crew members of the ship can become ‘sacrificial goat’ for jam in Suez?
