New Delhi, Aug 31: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has set up a high level group in view of the ongoing developments in Afghanistan. The high level group comprises National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, External Affairs Minister, S Jaishankar and other senior officials.
The top focus of the group would be India’s immediate priorities in Afghanistan. The immediate priority for India would be the evacuation of its nationals, many of who are still stranded in Afghansitan, which was taken over by Pakistan.
Another major priority would be to ensure that the Afghan soil is not used against India for any terror attacks. This is crucial in the backdrop of the meeting that the leaders of the Jaish-e-Mohammad had with the Taliban.
