Washington: A bipartisan group of US Senators has demanded to increase cooperation with India in Afghanistan. It also includes the help of New Delhi’s Afghan security forces, which can cause trouble for Pakistan.
MPs presented a proposal for a legislative amendment to the National Defense Authority (NDA) in the Senate in 2018 and sought its support. India is one of the largest providers of development assistance in the war-torn country. Pakistan can be disturbed by the amendment because it opposes any kind of interference in India in neighboring Afghanistan.
The amendment has been sought to increase the role of India in providing material support, hazard assessment, and maintenance assistance to Afghan security forces. Senator Dan Sullivan, Gary Peters, John Carnin and Mark Warner presented this amendment on Thursday. He is also the co-chair of the Senate India Caucus.
