India ready to provide humanitarian aid to Afghanistan: Taliban

Taliban spokesman Mujahid said this after meeting an Indian delegation led by JP Singh of the Pakistan-Afghanistan-Iran division of the MEA

A high-level Taliban delegation led by Deputy Prime Minister of Afghanistan’s interim government Abdul Salam Hanafi on 20 October met with an Indian delegation in Moscow during which the Indian side expressed its readiness to provide extensive humanitarian assistance to the war-torn country, which is now ruled by the insurgent group.

The Indian delegation led by JP Singh, the joint secretary of the -Afghanistan-Iran division of the Ministry of External Affairs, which was here to attend the Moscow Format meeting at the invitation of Russia, held talks with the Taliban leaders on the sidelines of the conference, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said in a brief statement.

There has been no official word from the Indian government on the meeting. India had its first formal contact with the Taliban in Doha on 31 August. However, the meeting on 20 October was the first formal contact between the two sides after an interim Cabinet was announced by the Taliban last month.

The Indian side expressed readiness to provide extensive humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan, Mujahid was quoted as saying by Afghanistan’s Tolo news. India has in the past provided assistance both for infrastructure as well as for humanitarian purposes to Afghanistan.

The two sides emphasised the need to take into account each other’s concerns and improve diplomatic and economic relations, Mujahid said.

The Moscow format was established in 2017, based on a six-party consultation mechanism of the special envoys of Russia, Afghanistan, India, Iran, China and to address Afghan issues. Several rounds of talks have been held in Moscow since 2017. This was the first Moscow format dialogue since the takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban in August.

The Taliban seized power in Afghanistan on 15 August, two weeks before the US was set to complete its troop withdrawal after a costly two-decade war.

During the Moscow Format meeting, Hanafi called on the international community to recognise Afghanistan’s interim government, which is dominated by the Taliban’s established leaders, including those who are on the UN blacklist.

“Afghanistan’s isolation is not in anyone’s interests. And this has been proven in the past,” he was quoted as saying by the Afghan news agency Khaama Press.

Hanafi urged the United States to unfreeze the reserves of Afghanistan’s Central Bank, which is about $ 9.4 billion.

Sangh parivar collected more than Rs 3,000 crores from Hindus as per media reports & gave that amount to a Sarkari Trust & a Sarkari Construction Committee to construct Ram Janma Bhumi Mandir.

Had Central or State Govt sanctioned Govt funds then they would have deserved credit.
