India advocates for greater connectivity with Central Asia

New Delhi, Dec 6 (Prensa Latina) India's National Security Advisor, Ajit Doval, stated that connectivity with Central Asian countries continues to be a key priority for India.

New Delhi is hosting this Tuesday the first meeting of National Security Advisors from India and Central Asia, including Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, focused on the evolution of the situation in Afghanistan and the fight against terrorism that might come forth from it, the All India Radio station reported.

India has offered to invest and build communication networks in the region as it seeks to foster greater cooperation and coordination with Central Asia in various areas, including security and trade, The Tribune newspaper noted.

Doval said that a peaceful, secure and prosperous Central Asian region is in the common interest and that the fight against financing terrorism must be an equal priority for all.

The national security adviser-level meeting comes about 10 months after the first India-Central Asia online summit, and Doval is likely to hold separate bilateral meetings with his visiting counterparts on the sidelines.

Those gathered there also discussed the rampant drug trade in the region, while Kyrgyz National Security Adviser Marat Imankulov stated that the common interest is to fight terrorism, extremism and drug trafficking, as well as resolving the situation in Afghanistan.

Tajikistan’s delegate, Nasrullo Mahmudzoda, referred to other regional warnings such as cybercrime, cyberterrorism and biological threats, as well as religious extremism, which is progressing rapidly.
