Washington DC: America Acknowledging India’s “constructive role” in Afghanistan’s development, he said such efforts are always welcome to help Afghanistan maintain stability.
Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said the Joe Biden administration is actively engaged in talks with Pakistan on safe havens along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.
“India has played a constructive role in Afghanistan in the past in improving training and other infrastructure. He was responding to a question on Indo-US cooperation in Afghanistan,” Kirby said.

“We need to realize that those safe havens are only creating more insecurity and more instability inside Afghanistan. We do not hesitate to negotiate with Pakistani leaders,” he said.
Withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan
The Pentagon’s observation is significant because it comes at a time when the United States is in the process of withdrawing troops from a war-torn country. The Joe Biden administration says the United States is moving toward a different bilateral relationship with Afghanistan, which will include economic and financial assistance from outside the country.
The security situation in Afghanistan has worried many countries, including India, who have stressed that a stable Afghanistan is essential for regional peace and security. After the US withdrew, the Taliban intensified their attacks in Afghanistan and occupied cities. Over the weekend, the Taliban launched a major offensive to seize the northern city of Kunduz.
