India today said that the withdrawal of NATO forces from Afghanistan would not only have security implications for South Asia but also for the US and other countries even as he called for maximum caution in the wake of the development.
With US-led forces shifting to a supporting role at the end of this month, Afghanistan will have to chart its own course after the country’s bloodiest year since the 2001 invasion, a year which saw record casualties among Afghan civilians and security forces alike.
India has told the UN Security Council that terrorist
groups threatening Afghanistan's peace and stability continue to
benefit from support from beyond its borders that enable them to survive
despite immense military pressure.
