Title Beyond 2014: India's Security Concerns and Indo-U.S. Strategic Partnership in Afghanistan.
Publication Date Mar 2012
Media Count 38p
Personal Author A. Thakur
Abstract In June 2011, the United States announced its troop withdrawal timetable from Afghanistan from 2011 to 2014 in the belief that Afghanistan would be in a position to manage its own affairs thereafter. In a situation in which forces detrimental to regional peace and security could fill the vacuum left by America's withdrawal, it is necessary for the international community to strengthen stability in Afghanistan and allow the population of the country to live peacefully. A number of countries in the region are directly affected by the situation in Afghanistan, particularly India, Pakistan, Iran, the Central Asian Republics, Russia, and China. However, a conflict of interests among these states precludes a regional solution. As both India and the United States share the vision of a peaceful and stable Afghanistan, they could formulate a joint strategy to ensure that Afghanistan does not fall into an abyss, and that the efforts and sacrifices of the past decade are not nullified. Joint cooperation in political, economic, military, and social domains needs to be formulated and implemented while keeping the interests of other regional stakeholders in perspective.
