Members of Heart of Asia Must Press for Immediate Reduction of Violence in Afghanistan: India

Indian Minister of External Affairs S. Jaishankar says the members of Heart of Asia summit and supporting countries should make it a priority to press for an immediate reduction in violence leading to a permanent and comprehensive ceasefire in Afghanistan.

India’s Ministry of External Affairs in a statement said that during the Istanbul conference, Minister Jaishankar said that a stable, sovereign and peaceful Afghanistan is truly the basis for peace and progress in the region.

“For a durable peace in Afghanistan, what we need is a genuine ‘double peace’, that is, peace within Afghanistan and peace around Afghanistan. It requires harmonizing the interests of all, both within and around that country. India has been supportive of all the efforts being made to accelerate the dialogue between the Afghan government and the Taliban, including intra-Afghan negotiations,” Indian Minister said.

Jaishankar stated that if the peace process is to be successful, then it is necessary to ensure that the negotiating parties continue to engage in good faith, with a serious commitment towards reaching a political solution.

Jaishankar noted that India welcomes any move towards a genuine political settlement and a comprehensive and permanent ceasefire in Afghanistan.

“We appreciate the international recognition of foundational principles that will determine their contours.

We support a regional process to be convened under the aegis of the United Nations. UN stewardship would help to take into account all relevant UN resolutions and improve the odds for a lasting outcome,” he added.
