Taliban wants to make ‘Merchant of Death’ a representative in India, know who is Abdul Kahar Balkhi?


Taliban wants to send ambassador to Delhi

ThePrint claims in its report that Afghan diplomatic officials have told it that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has begun persuading New Delhi to send its representative. Taliban wants that it can deploy its representative in the capital of India. Among the names proposed for the post, the sources said, is Abdul Kahar Balkhi, a controversial spokesman for the Taliban regime’s foreign ministry who has been accused of making several death threats to journalists. According to the report, this request of the Taliban has put the Government of India in a quandary whether to accept or reject the Taliban’s request to send an envoy to Delhi.

The decision is not easy for the Government of India!

The Indian government wants to maintain its diplomatic relations with Afghanistan and that is why last year India reopened its mission in Kabul. At the same time, the Taliban has appealed to the Indian government to resume its stalled projects in Afghanistan and has also promised to take responsibility for the security of those projects. But, the difficulty with India is that India does not recognize the Taliban regime, so this issue has become a complex diplomatic challenge for India, as India also wants to rebuild its influence in Afghanistan. Since India has maintained special relations with the people of Afghanistan, India is in a quandary whether to listen to the Taliban or not. At the same time, ThePrint has said in its report that the Indian Ministry of External Affairs has refused to comment in front of the media on the request of the Taliban.

Sources said the Afghan Foreign Ministry officials first proposed sending a representative to India in July last year when Joint Secretary J.P. A team of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs led by Singh had visited Kabul. Since that visit, three Indian diplomats and local staff were posted in Kabul. In addition, an estimated 80 personnel of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) oversee Indian humanitarian aid to Afghanistan. The foreign ministry is believed to be considering reopening its consulate in Kandahar, which was closed after Kabul fell to the Taliban. Sources said that Taliban officials are also closely linked with India’s intelligence services and that the Taliban continues to try to allay New Delhi’s concerns that its regime is dominated by Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed and Not harboring al-Qaeda cadres.

Taliban telling the truth or lying?

Taliban telling the truth or lying?

The Taliban is undoubtedly telling India that it is not supporting terrorist organizations, but in a 2019 report, the United Nations monitors warned that members of these groups were working for the Taliban. The UN report stated that these organizations were “acting as advisors, trainers and experts in explosive devices”. However, the UN monitoring mission ceased when the Taliban came to power. At the same time, New Delhi may also move towards resuming its own development projects in Afghanistan to counter the growing influence of China. Last week, China’s Xinjiang Central Asia Petroleum and Gas Company signed a $150 million deal to prospect for gas and oil in the Amu Darya basin in northern Afghanistan, so India may also step up to assert its influence in Afghanistan.
