Washington, Aug 2: US senator John Kerry hinted that US government will engage more with India and Pakistan for a political resolution in Afghanistan.
John Kerry, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, revealed this during an interview in CNN. This shows that the US officials admitted New Delhi's sakes in Afghanistan.
"The answer for permanent peace in the region is a political resolution and that political resolution has to come about by engaging to a greater degree with India, with Pakistan itself," said Kerry, who has played a key role in shaping the Obama administration's Afghanistan-Pakistan policy.
"But I think we should also engage China, Russia, and I would say that the possibility could exist even of Iran playing a role in helping to change the equation on the ground," he added.
