Policy of non interference.
Plus the Iranians won't allow.
I mean just the hardware for afghan army
I guess we are supplying them some of our old military hardware.
India should supply then with more Mi-35, 105mm IFG and T-55's or 72's as they retire and are replaced by T-90/Arjun Mk2.
In other words, our link to Central Asia is now operational.
How can Afghanistan even pay back? Are we doling out stuff for developing relationship or is it trade?
yahan kisaan bhook se mar rahy hai paise mil nahi rahy... inhe daan dene ki parhi hai.. Charity, It's a good thing but make sure they sell to other countries also so that some profit can be generated for farmers.
Its trade not aide. We can import dried fruits and minerals from Afghanistan. Afghanistan is sitting on lot of mineral deposit and India must help them develop it. None of the weapons I have mentioned are so devastating that Iran or pakistan should shit themselves.
Afghanistan armed forces hav access to better quality US weapons. Our weapons is not going to give any
advantage to Afghanistan army. Afghanistan army need to find a way to neutralise Taliban suicide bombers. Most of the Afghanistan army casualities r due to suicide attack.
I dont think US is sincere in bringing peace to Afghanistan. They r working in some other plan.
If the government is buying the wheat from farmers and then giving it, it's still profit for the farmer right?
It's a loss
Govt gives a lot of wheat for free to Ration card holders who can pay, and MNREGA who get 20 - 20 kgs of wheat every month. And In charity here and there. Almost 25-30% of Indian population eats for free.
There is no profit and govt runs in loss and hence farmers aren't paid well. This is the actual problem.
M16/ M4 used mostly by their SF with a reputation for jamming up in fine dust so does irregularities in field cleaning by soldiers themselves, 122mm D30 with mere range of 14-15kms at most, Cessna tubro prop for ground support ..
US funds them for weapons and few US weapons in their service which are mostly with SOF, I can name few of Indian system which surpass systems operational in Afghan Army of US origin and Chinese so does east block ..
Go though things you tend to talk about, Get more knowledge before getting into inferior complexity about your own kind and stuff..
India has supplied INSAS to Oman, Nepal etc and can so the same for ANA.
Indian 105 mm >> D20 gun (122 mm) and USA has not provided them with any gun or tanks. India can provide T-55/72 and spares.
USA has not provided any attack chopper, Mi-35 which we are retiring will be used very well by ANA instead of garbage like cessna. I am sure they would appreciate Rudra also as it can serve both as transport and attack.
Afghanistan to make Test debut against India
Afghanistan will play their inaugural Test match against India in 2018. Rahul Johri, the BCCI chief executive officer, confirmed that India would host Afghanistan, and that the two boards would work out the venue and the dates shortly.
Since being inducted as an ICC Full Member in June, alongside Ireland, Afghanistan have been looking for an opponent to play their maiden Test match against.
Ireland have already confirmed that they will play their first Test against Pakistan in May 2018.
2nd Air Cargo Route Launched - To India’s Mumbai City
A second air cargo route has been officially launched from Afghanistan to India’s Mumbai city which will further increase export of fresh fruit.
A second air cargo route, this time to Mumbai, was officially launched on Wednesday from Afghanistan to India following the success of the Afghanistan-New Delhi route.
At the launch ceremony in Kabul, the Deputy Chairman of the Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ACCI), Khan Jan Alokozay said Afghanistan’s fruit exports will increase further with the Kabul-Mumbai route.
“The government has taken 80 percent responsibility of exporting of fruits to outside the country,” Alokozai said.
He also thanked President Ashraf Ghani for the government’s efforts, and said: “India is not charging taxes to Afghan traders. We are also trying to send fruit to India’s Amritsar city.”
In the meantime, Second Vice President Mohammad Sarwar Danish also said that the air corridor is very important for the government, adding that “we are hoping that the neighboring countries even consider the economy in their political policy.”
“India also promised to hold exhibition for Afghan traders in Mumbai city and they also want to create business chambers,” Danish said. “We hope that our Ministry of Foreign Affairs develops this relations even further.”
On Sunday, the Head of the Public Relations Office of the Senior Advisor to the President in Banking and Finance, Sameer Rasa, said since the launch of the air cargo corridor between Afghanistan and New Delhi, in India, six months ago, fresh produce, dried fruit and medicinal plants to the value of $20 million USD has been exported to India.
According to Rasa it is expected that within two days, cargo flights will also be launched to Mumbai in India.
Rasa said that in the six months since the launch of the cargo route, 10,640 tons of fresh and dried fruit, medicinal plants and handcrafts have been exported to Indian markets.
In addition, the ACCI officials said that the establishment of air corridors between Afghanistan and India is key to boosting exports to India and also to the rest of the world.
“When we look back at our exports in the past six months the total volume of our exports in which the air corridor had a significant role, we have seen a dramatic increase and it totals - in the six months - to about $398 million USD,” said Atiqullah Nusrat, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the ACCI.
This comes amid ongoing talks between government and the private sector to open up other air cargo routes to foreign countries.
But some businessmen have said that government needs to focus on attracting investment for the packaging sector for agricultural products if it wants to increase its exports.
We should make some contacts with taliban
"Why the hell should we care about what Pakistan thinks about India's presence in Afghanistan,,,,,India is a free and sovereign nation..."
Well said! India is popular, progressive, very familiar and very benign. India has an ancient relationship with Afghanistan that goes back to pre-Buddhist times, let alone pre-Islamic.The very names Afghanistan, Kabul and Kandahar are of Indian/Sanskritic origin. India is not alien, undesirable, unprogressive and anti-plural in Afghanistan. The Taliban and the Pakistanis are these things, except for alien.
Separate names with a comma.
