India to ensure Afghan situation not used to create cross-border terrorism: Rajnath Singh

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said the Indian government wants to ensure no one exploits the situation in Afghanistan to spread cross-border terrorism in India.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said on Monday that India is closely monitoring the security situation in Kabul. Without naming any country, Rajnath Singh said the government wants to ensure that nobody takes advantage of the crisis in Afghanistan to create cross-border terrorism in India.

“The government is concerned about the security of Indians in Afghanistan and at the same time want to ensure that no foreign country should exploit the situation to spread terrorism at our borders,” Rajnath Singh said.

Speaking about the tensions at LAC in Eastern Ladakh, the defence minister said China violated the agreed protocols, triggering a military tussle in Eastern Ladakh last year, but India will not allow any unilateral action at Line of Actual Control.

“There has been a difference of perception but there were agreements and protocols that were followed by both countries while patrolling,” Singh said.

Rajnath Singh was speaking at a virtual platform and said it’s been a year since the Galwan clash in Eastern Ladakh, where 20 Indian army soldiers lost their lives in an ugly clash with China, but future generations will always be proud of the valour of the bravehearts.
