India steps up economic and military aid to Afghanistan

NEW DELHI- India is stepping up economic assistance for Afghanistan. Regardless of the security
concerns, the Indian government has no intention of pulling out of the major developmental projects that it is currently executing in the war-ravaged country.

While there is understandable anxiety on India’s part regarding the security scenario in Afghanistan, New Delhi wants to continue assisting a country that’s traditionally been a close friend.

India also hopes to earn the goodwill of Afghanistan due to its tremendous geo-strategic significance and because the region’s stability depends upon Afghanistan’s stability.

The Indian commitment to assist Afghanistan was given formal shape with the signing of the strategic partnership agreement nearly three years ago.
