THREAD: US withdrawal from #Afghanistan was inevitable. As early as 2013, I’d advised govt to open diplomatic channels with #Taliban to secure our strategic interests. We’ve made $3 billion in investments in Afghanistan. But no one paid heed & now what’ll the govt do? 1/3 pic.twitter.com/uTyCZMzdhg

Owaisi has said that he had told the U.S. that the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan is certain. “As early as 2013, I had cautioned the Center to establish a diplomatic level dialogue with the Taliban in order to protect our interests in Afghanistan.”
Owaisi said that we had invested $3 billion dollars in Afghanistan. No government paid attention. And now we have to see what the Modi government does.
Owaisi also said that in the year 2019 he had reiterated his concerns about Taliban activity in Afghanistan in Parliament. “When Pakistan, the U.S. and the Taliban were holding talks in Moscow, the Prime Minister’s Office was counting the number of times they hugged then U.S. President Donald Trump. We still do not know what is the policy of the Modi government regarding Afghanistan.”
For information, the Taliban occupied Kabul on Sunday. Ashraf Ghani, the President of Afghanistan, fled his country with close friends. The Taliban’s rule over Afghanistan has been completely done. Fearing the growing influence of the Taliban, people are leaving Afghanistan. India is also running a mission to get its citizens out of there.
India has invested in projects worth thousands of crores in Afghanistan. Other development projects including Salma Dam have come into the hands of the Taliban. In such a situation, there is concern among people about the danger looming over Indian investment.
