After a detailed dialogue on the geopolitical situation in Afghanistan, the heads of the National Security Councils of seven nations, who are in Delhi for the Regional Security Dialogue on Afghanistan hosted by National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday evening.

As per a statement released by the Prime Minister's Office, the senior security officials — representing Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan — expressed their appreciation of India's initiative in organising the Dialogue and of the quality of the exchanges. They also conveyed the perspectives of their respective countries on the Afghan situation.

According to an ANI report, sources said that the regional dialogue had exceeded India's expectations and the NSAs easily arrived at a complete consensus, which enabled the joint Delhi Declaration.

In his meet with the NSAs, Prime Minister Narendra Modi emphasised on the need for an inclusive government in Kabul and a zero-tolerance stance on the use of Afghan territory by terrorist groups.

He also suggested that a strategy needed to be devised to counter the trafficking of drugs and arms from Afghanistan and addressing the increasingly critical humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan.

Modi also appreciated the participation of the senior dignitaries in the Delhi security dialogue despite the challenges posed by the pandemic.

A statement after the meet, read: "He emphasised four aspects that countries in the region would need to focus on, in the context of Afghanistan: the need for an inclusive government, a zero-tolerance stance about Afghan territory being used by terrorist groups, a strategy to counter trafficking of drugs and arms from Afghanistan and addressing the increasingly critical humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan."
