    India's role in Afghanistan constructive: US


    Washington (PTI): Dismissing Islamabad's allegations that India is using its consulates in Afghanistan to recruit anti-Pakistan insurgents and spread its influence in the region, a US report said that New Delhi has played a "constructive role" in the war-torn nation post-Taliban.

    The Congressional Research Service (CRS), a research wing of US Congress, in its latest report "Afghanistan: Post-Taliban Governance, Security and US Policy," has said that despite Pakistan's accusations many US observers believe India's role in Afghanistan is constructive.

    Appreciating India's role in development of Afghanistan, the CRS said "India is the fifth largest single country donor to Afghan reconstruction, funding projects worth about USD 1.2 billion.

    India, along with the Asian Development Bank, has financed a USD 300 million project to bring electricity from Central Asia to Afghanistan.

    It has also renovated well-known Habibia High School in Kabul and committed to a USD 25 million renovation of Darulaman Palace as the permanent house for Afghanistan's Parliament.

    I came upon a new article the other day which said that the US is trying to pare down Indian ops in Astan.

    Here is the link:

    This is confusing

    Americans are known for their double-speak. What is not clear is, does it bore out of confusion or a deliberate policy making?. So far, Af-pak/fak-ap policy has been anything but impressive.
