India has huge interest in Afghanistan: Russian diplomat

India has huge interest in Afghanistan and it is for New Delhi to decide its extent of involvement in the conflict-ridden country, a senior Russian diplomat said on Wednesday amidst growing security concerns over the Taliban fighters rapidly seizing control of a large number of areas, forcing many countries to scale down their presence there.

India’s interest in Afghanistan:

Deputy Chief of the Russian mission here Roman Babushkin, at a press conference, also said the Taliban is a “current reality” in Afghanistan and the formation of an inclusive government with representation from all ethnic groups could pave the way for peace and stability in the conflict-ridden country.

Noting that both Russia and India are supportive of the dialogue process in Afghanistan, he said they are actively monitoring the evolving situation in that country.

Afghanistan is going through a critical period and that there is no military solution to it, the diplomat said.
