 “Transparency in the India-Afghanistan and Pakistan-Afghanistan bilateral relationships is critical to reduce misunderstanding and mistrust between India and Pakistan,” Admiral Samuel Locklear told a Senate Committee during a confirmation hearing for him as being Commander of the US Pacific Command (PACOM).
