Guest:

  • Arvind Gupta, (Director, Vivekananda International Foundation - VIF)
  • Dr. Sreeram Chaulia, (Foreign Affairs Expert)

Topic Description:

Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla said on Friday that the situation in Afghanistan is fluid and uncertain. Speaking at a virtual conference organised by Public Affairs Forum of India, the Foreign Secretary listed the withdrawal of US troops and the Taliban’s relentless pursuit of power through violence, including targeted assassinations and capture of territory as reasons for triggering the uncertainty. His comments came against the backdrop of the U.S. having completed the withdrawal of more than 50% of its troops from Afghanistan well ahead of a September deadline, and violence by the Taliban having increased despite talks with the group at different forums.
