India should engage the Afghan Taliban only when they make two public official statements that Kashmir is an ‘Integral Part of India’ and secondly, that Afghan Taliban is committed to the creation of Greater Afghanistan incorporating Pashtun Areas of Pakistan’s borderlands.

Afghanistan Misperceives China as an Honest Broker in Peace Process:

Paper No. 6554                           Dated 27-Mar-2020
