NEW DELHI (AFP) - Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Afghan President Hamid Karzai met in New Delhi on Monday and vowed to tackle the militant violence that threatens regional stability. The talks came two months after nine Indians were killed in a suicide attack in Kabul that Indian officials blamed on Pakistan-based group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT). India is heavily involved in reconstruction and aid efforts in Afghanistan and has provided more than a billion dollars in assistance since the fall of the Taliban regime in 2001. We discussed the issue of terrorism, which threatens our region, Singh said. President Karzai assured me that the government of Afghanistan will take all possible measures for the security of Indians in Afghanistan. Without mentioning Pakistan by name, Singh said the attacks in Kabul in February were the handiwork of those who do not wish to see the emergence of a strong, independent and pluralistic Afghanistan. He stressed that the attacks would not undermine Indias commitment to the country. India is also increasingly concerned over plans to open talks with moderate Taliban - a policy being pushed by many within the international coalition engaged in Afghanistan. Karzai said the two leaders had talked about the peace jirga planned in late May to bring together all of Afghanistans tribal leaders. He said the jirga would give advice on how to reconcile those Taliban and other militants who are not part of Al-Qaeda, who are not part of any terrorist network. India, which maintained warm relations with the US under former president George W Bush, has strong doubts about US President Barack Obamas plans to withdraw from Afghanistan from next year. It fears the United States is concentrating more on Pakistans stability rather than the security threat that Pakistan poses to India.
