'India should be transparent with Pak over Afghan'

Written by: Staff

Washington, Jan 28: Urging India to be transparent regarding its activities in Afghanistan with Pakistan, United States on Wednesday, Jan 27, has asked India to spell out its role in Afghan policy.

Department of Defence spokesman Geoff Morrell said that in a recent visit to India, US Defence Secretary Robert Gates and the Indian leaders had discussed the need of transparency in its undertakings on Afghanistan.

“We did discuss Afghanistan with the government in Delhi and discussed the need for the Indian government to be as transparent as they can be with the Pakistani government about their activities in Afghanistan," Morrell said.

Lauding India's support to Afghanistan, Morrell said that international community appreciates the country's support.

"They (India) clearly have contributed much in a monetary sense, financial support to the government in Afghanistan. That is greatly appreciated by us, by the Afghans, and I think by the international community," Morrell said.

However, he dismissed reports on India's role in training Afghan forces.

“Beyond that, there was this talk of perhaps the Indians providing training to Afghan forces. That is not something that I think anybody is pursuing at this point," he said.
