PM Meets Rajnath Singh, Amit Shah, Ajit Doval To Discuss Afghanistan
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Home Minister Amit Shah and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval at his residence this afternoon to discuss the ongoing situation in Afghanistan. The meeting comes on the heels of the Taliban claims of total control over Afghanistan with a key battle at Panjshir Valley, where the Afghan National Resistance Front had their base.
Forces led by former vice president Amrullah Saleh and Ahmad Massoud, the son of former Afghan guerrilla commander Ahmad Shah Massoud, have been fighting the Taliban from this base in the mountains.
The Afghan National Resistance Front has told NDTV that the Taliban claims are baseless. "The road in the Panjshir Valley is with the Taliban. However, fighting continues in the sub-valleys," they said.
"We assure the people of Afghanistan that the struggle against the Taliban and their partners will continue until justice and freedom prevails," the Front also tweeted.
