India rejects Donald Trump’s remarks belittling contribution in Afghanistan

In this deployment what have the soldiers done at the border? According to one report “very little.”

The remarks also raised eyebrows among officials in Afghanistan at a time when Kabul has voiced frustration with Trump's sudden announcement of a plan to withdraw up to half of USA troops as peace talks with Taliban insurgents continue without Afghan government involvement. After his first cabinet meeting in the New Year, Trump mockingly referred to one of his conversations with Modi in the past when the Indian prime minister reportedly told about building a library in Afghanistan.

"India firmly believes in the critical role that developmental assistance can play in transforming human lives".

In the field of connectivity, India is working on the development of Iran's Chabahar port and has established direct air freight corridors with Afghanistan. "We will be doing that in not-too-distant future", he said.

He also went on to question the roles played by other neighbouring countries such as Russian Federation and Pakistan. Some 14,000 U.S. troops are now stationed in Afghanistan. The cricketer-turned politician said in January a year ago that meeting President Trump would be a "bitter pill" to swallow. "A lot of people don't know it, because they haven't been fair to us".

New Delhi has also provided 1.1 million tonnes of wheat to Afghanistan as well as a 400-bed children's hospital built in 1972 and renovated after the fall of the Taliban in 2002. Russia. So you tend to look at other countries.

"I ended the $1.3billion aid to Pakistan because they have not been fair to us".




India's comments were attributed to official sources and widely circulated to domestic media. "India does not send its armed forces overseas except under the specific mandate of United Nations peacekeeping operations", a government source said.

Former Afghan intelligence chief Rahmatullah Nabil responded with a string of tweets that addressed the impact the Soviet loss in Afghanistan had on the outcome of the Cold War and lamenting recent reports that the United States was planning a drawdown of its troops in Afghanistan. Supporting Kabul's line, New Delhi wants direct talks between Taliban and the Afghan governments, which has so far been rejected by the terror group.

Trump was at a press appearance at a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, January 2, and spoke about the India-funded library in the country.

His understanding of Soviet motivations towards Afghanistan (the invasion wasn't about terrorism) as well as the effects of that invasion on the USSR are simplistic, and not even really correct. Trump added that he'd "essentially" fired Mattis, though the Marine general resigned in protest over Trump's announced withdrawal from Syria. "They were right to be there", Trump told reporters at the White House.

The Soviets invaded the Central Asian country in 1979 in order to install a friendly government there.
