"There is a difference between official statements and the official policy of the country".
India has also been supplying military equipment to Afghanistan besides providing training to hundreds of Afghan security personnel.
To another question, Trump said, Russian Federation used to be Soviet Union. "The Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan with three divisions in December 1979 to prop up a fellow communist government". Naturally they're presenting this to keep the American War in Afghanistan going, but it seems that narratively their real problem with the Soviet occupation was that it ended. We want to help our people. "The Afghans did not carry out suicide attacks during the Jihad and they did not pose any threat to any country", the statement concluded.
Kim, Kanye West allegedly expecting fourth child via surrogate
In an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians broadcast previous year , Kim discussed her family plans for the future. ET Canada has reached out to Kardashian and West's rep for comment, but they did not immediately respond.
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. So you take a look at other countries. "They've been fighting in Afghanistan for 19 years". Great idea, except that Pakistan is already fighting in Afghanistan, but mostly on the wrong side (the Taliban). The Trump administration recently gave a sanctions waiver to India's Chabahar port in Iran precisely because of its centrality to providing land-locked Afghanistan access to sea routes. The question naturally becomes one of wondering what else they're fundamentally misreading if they were so wrong about something that was so easy to get right and whether or not their incompetence in other spheres could have serious national security implications for India at home.
Therefore, at this critical phase of the Afghan conflict, it would make better sense for the United States to recognise the salience of India's non-military approach towards conflict resolution in Afghanistan.
In a meeting with Cabinet officials on Wednesday, President Donald Trump spoke about walls, wheels and foreign affairs, including a recollection of world history that startled an ally in the United States' longest war. We are supposed to say, oh thank you for the library.
This offer to meet with the new government in Pakistan is a breakaway from Trump's negative tone adopted around a year ago that he was cutting off security related aid to Pakistan because it was providing "a safe haven to terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help".

Even as the U.S. recently walked back on reports that it was planning to withdraw 7,000 troops from Afghanistan, Kabul has accelerated its preparations for the highly-likely scenario of large-scale disengagement by the Trump administration.
Omar Samad, a former Afghan diplomat who is now a senior fellow at the Washington-based Atlantic Council, was also quick to criticize Trump's remarks.
Projects have included the reconstruction of an elite high school in Kabul and scholarships to India for 1,000 Afghan students each year.
"What's he done for me?" Putting the seal on the clear drift in the U.S. Afghanistan and South Asia policy from the past was the exit of Defence Secretary James Mattis, author of the South Asia policy.
