“India in Afghanistan in difficult times”; Statement by the Indian Foreign Minister at the UNl

India on Monday expressed concern over the serious humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and promised to stand by Afghanistan as before. “Afghanistan is going through an important and challenging situation and the international community must come together to create a better environment there,” said Foreign Minister S Jaishankar. He also called for reforms in Afghanistan’s airlines. A high-level UN meeting was convened to discuss the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan.

In his brief address at the UN High Level Meeting on the situation in Afghanistan, the Foreign Minister also emphasized the threat of growing poverty. “Afghanistan is going through a difficult period and the people of Afghanistan may face increasing poverty in the near future,” he said. Jaishankar said. “It could have devastating consequences for regional stability. India has consistently supported the central role of the United Nations in the future of Afghanistan. “India’s approach to Afghanistan has always been and will continue to be guided by its historic friendship with the people there,” Jaishankar said.

Jaishankar also said that Afghan nationals who have valid documents and want to leave Afghanistan should be allowed to leave the country safely. Jaishankar’s statement is significant because the Taliban has imposed restrictions on people leaving the country. The Taliban have also suspended several flights. S. Jaishankar also emphasized on normalizing flight services from Kabul airport. He said that due to the smooth flow of commercial flights, relief materials could be easily transported there.

As Afghanistan’s closest neighbor, India is keeping a close eye on developments there. The issue of travel and safe movement could be an impediment to humanitarian aid that needs to be addressed immediately, the foreign minister said.
