The situation in Afghanistan has brought up new issues from the national security perspective, and India is monitoring the developments there, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said on Monday. He said India is also concerned that “anti-national” forces should not take advantage of the changed scenario and promote cross-border terrorism.
“What is happening in neighbouring Afghanistan is raising new questions from the security point of view. Our government is constantly monitoring the situation there. Along with the security of Indians, our government also wants that by taking advantage of the situation being created there, anti-national forces should not encourage cross-border terrorism,” Singh said.
