Human rights emphasised in Security Dialogue in Afghanistan

Dushanbe : India's National Security Advisor Ajit Doval emphasised the need for finding urgent and constructive ways to control terrorism and ensure peace in Afghanistan.

While addressing the two day security dialogue on Afghanistan in the Capital of Tajikistan Dushanbe, Doval said, "We will stand with the people of Afghanistan, as we have special relationships with the people built over centuries." The Regional Security on Afghanistan was attended by representatives of Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, China and Tajikistan.

There is an urgent need to enhance the capabilities of Afghanistan to counter-terrorism and terrorist groups that are threatening regional peace and security. Even after the Taliban took over, terrorism in Afghanistan has not ended.

India has provided 17,000 MT of Wheat, 50,000 dosesof Covaxin and 13 tonnes of essential medicines, clothing and 60 million doses of Polio vaccine. All the participants laid emphasis on the security of the regions and ways to contain terrorism.
