Afghanistan welcomes India’s ‘willingness’ to help Air Force


KABUL: The Afghan Ministry of Defence (MoD) has welcomed India’s decision to consider whether to pay for repairs to grounded helicopters and transport planes from the Afghan Air Force as part of their willingness to step up military assistance to Kabul.

The Defence Ministry spokesman Dawlat Waziri said, “The friendship between Afghanistan and India does not mean enmity with another nation.”

“New Delhi has positively responded to Kabul’s call for military assistance,” he said.

“We want India’s cooperation in any sector which is in the interests of the two countries. India is a friend of Afghanistan and we are independent countries,” Waziri told an Afghan TV channel.

Meanwhile, commenting on what India’s willingness for military support to Afghanistan reveals, military analyst Muhsen Mukhtar said India knows what Afghanistan needs help militarily.

“India knows the military needs of Afghanistan, because Afghanistan is of unique importance to India and wants a stable Afghanistan,” Mukhtar said.
