The future of Afghanistan and India’s ambiguous relations with it

Strategic Council Online—Opinion: If for any reason, the Taliban are successful, either through political means and negotiations or military action, to possess maximum power in Afghanistan, and the two other parties—the North Front and the Liberal Democrats—are consequently placed in the weakness position, India would be definitely a loser as the Taliban’s view is ideological and therefore considers groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen against India in Keshmir as its own allies. Therefore, if the Taliban are placed in the position of strength and power in Afghanistan, they would provide such groups with operational bases and India can no longer play a significant role in that country.

It should be noted that Afghanistan enjoys a strategic status in the US foreign policy to contain China; therefore, if we differentiate between these two points, then the issue of the presence of the US in Afghanistan becomes clarified to a great extent.
