According to political commentators, Pakistani delegation has expressed concern over Afghanistan-India relations.

The relationship between Afghanistan and India has recently increased after when Abdullah Abdullah, chief executive officer of the country with the officials of India, have been on the rise of India-Afghanistan relations.

Abdullah also said that “no country is allowed to have a veto right in any foreign policy in Afghanistan; Abdullah’s remarks were linked to recent comments by the Pakistani Prime Minister.

Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi had said in his recent statement he would not accept India’s military and political role in Afghanistan and wants India to have only an economic role in Afghanistan.

The growing relationship between Afghanistan and India has led Pakistani authorities to create a secure and trustful environment between the Afghan government and Pakistan, as late in the year, Pakistan has been accused of cooperating with terrorist groups by the US, and during a trip that the US Secretary of Defence had to South Asia did not meet with Pakistani officials, but emphasized on the growing role of India in Afghanistan.
