India on Thursday dismissed US President Donald Trump's remark that it is not doing enough for peace and stability in Afghanistan, with sources here saying New Delhi does not send troops overseas except under specific United Nations mandate. Over the past few years India has helped Afghanistan build roads, erect power transmission lines and construct a parliament building. India justified its partnership with Afghan. Trump's thesis was that foreign leaders take America for a ride.
"India is not driven by commercial or short-term strategic gains".
India, on its part, conveyed India's continued "support" for the efforts of the Government and the people of Afghanistan to bring "peace", "security" and "prosperity" to that country. Russia. ... The reason Russia was in Afghanistan was because terrorists were going into Russia.
