Afghan-US-India trilateral meeting next month: Kerry

Afghan-US-India trilateral meeting next month: Kerry

Aug 31, 2016 - 14:00

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Secretary of State John Kerry has said a trilateral meeting of US, Indian and Afghanistaninfo-icon will be held next month on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

Addressing a press conference with Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj in New Delhi on Tuesday, Kerry said the purpose of the meeting was to enhance cooperation among the three countries on various issues.

A decision on holding the tripartite meeting was not against any country, but was only aimed to bring peace and stability to Afghanistan, the US secretary explained.

He asked Pakistaninfo-icon to bring culprits behind Mumbai and Pathankot attacks to justice. The US was ready to re-launch its military campaign against the Talibanif the Afghan government demanded so.

"We cannot and will not make distinctions between good and bad terrorists," Kerry said. "Terror is terror no matter where it comes from, (or) who carries it out."

India blamed Pakistan for both attacks. Pakistan is trying suspects in the Mumbai attacks, in which 166 people died. Investigations into this year's airbase attack have so far been inconclusive.

In New Delhi for strategic talks with his Indian counterpart, Kerry said Pakistan had made progress in the fight against extremism in recent months. However, he but urged Islamabad to push harder against militants on its soil.
