India Again Excluded from Extended Troika Meeting

India Again  Excluded from  Extended Troika Meeting

KABUL - India has once again excluded from an important meeting of the Extended Troika on the latest situation in Afghanistan, a media report said on Saturday.
The Press Trust of India said Pakistan, China and the United States were expected to attend the Russia-convened meeting.
Russia has intensified diplomatic efforts to bring together key stakeholders to control the growing violence and push the peace process in Afghanistan.
The so-called Extended Troika is scheduled to meet in Qatar on August 11. Similar meetings were earlier held on March 18 and April 30.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in June Moscow would continue to interact with Delhi and other key capitals on the situation in Afghanistan.
Lavrov’s statement had prompted speculation about India being invited to the upcoming ‘Extended Troika’ meeting in the Qatar capital. (Pajhwok)
