With Taliban Back, India Needs To Work With U.S. On A Three-Pronged Security Strategy: Meera Shankar
India needs to strengthen its intelligence cooperation with the U.S. on a real-time basis to help ward off potential security threats arising as a consequence of the Taliban’s return to power in Afghanistan, according to Meera Shankar, former Indian ambassador to America.
“The U.S. can help build India’s counter-terrorism capabilities, particularly in technology upgrades, and this is an ongoing process that is unlikely to be disrupted. In fact, I see the logic of the situation taking this further,” Ambassador Shankar said a day after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi returned from his first visit to the White House during the Joe Biden administration. Modi's visit also saw the first in-person ‘Quad’ summit between the heads of the governments of Australia, Japan, the U.S. and India.
