India is the biggest South Asian donor to Afghanistan, spending around $2 billion on reconstruction and rehabilitation, according to the Indian embassy in Kabul. However, it was not clear about what particular project the US President was talking about when he referred to PM Modi. I mean, I'll give you an example. He is very smart.
Sources said that Afghanistan also told India that in the event USA troops are withdrawn from the region, Kabul should be able to secure the nation. "I don't know who is using it in Afghanistan". But it's one of those things. "I'm not happy with what he's done in Afghanistan and I shouldn't be happy", Trump said.
"I say this, India".
U.S. President Donald Trump holds a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi alongside the ASEAN Summit in Manila, Philippines on November 13, 2017. He is a great gentleman and a great man and he's done a fantastic job. 'It can be done if Taliban are brought to the table and Pakistan can play an important role, ' he said. Donald Trump's jibe at India, mocking the latter's developmental efforts underscore why he needs to introspect more about America's disastrous efforts in bringing peace and stability to Afghanistan. "And we are supposed to say, "oh, thank you for the library".
But Pence said the United States was not "giving up on the fight" against IS militants and Washington was "going to continue to lean into the fight". Why isn't Pakistan there? But I don't mind. "It is for the people to decide whether they want to have an worldwide presence in Afghanistan or not", he said.
Trump brought up India's aid during a rambling press appearance at a cabinet meeting as he defended his push for the United States to invest less overseas. India has repeatedly said it backs an "Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process".
Mr. Khalilzad's direct talks with the Taliban that cut out the National Unity government (NUG) in Kabul reportedly didn't even have President Ashraf Ghani in the loop until after the first talks were held in Qatar - this reversed the previous USA position not to engage the Taliban until it engages the NUG.
The board then targets Trump's support of the Soviet Union's presence in the country in the '80s when he said they were "right to be there".
Trump's outbursts of anger over the duplicity of Pakistan's Afghan policy had suggested that Afghanistan could provide a means of solidifying the India-United States partnership. Senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel also termed as "completely unacceptable" the US President's jibe at Mr Modi and asked the government to remind America of India's assistance to Afghanistan. You can talk about our generals.
In his statement, Ghani stressed the importance of worldwide forces in Afghanistan - last month Trump ordered the military to withdraw roughly 7,000 troops from the country - and requested clarification about whether the president's statements had any implication for American policy.
To another question, Trump said, Russian Federation used to be Soviet Union. But ee recalled that the Russians once tried to fight extremist groups in Afghanistan and failed and the Soviet Union went bankrupt as a result.
Without going into details, Trump asserted that he is going to do work out something good in Afghanistan. He also went on a tirade against allies for not spending enough on overseas engagements while the U.S., he claimed, spends billions.
"India welcomes the fact that the people of Afghanistan have time and again reposed faith in democratic governance and the forthcoming presidential elections in Afghanistan will further deepen the roots of democracy in Afghanistan", the MEA said.
