Afghan situation poses new security questions: Defense Minister

The current happenings in Afghan have posed new security questions, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said on Monday. However, the government is alert and no anti-national force should be allowed to encourage terrorism from across the border by taking advantage of the situation, the Defence Minister said, emphasizing that the central government is capable of dealing with any situation.

While addressing virtually the third Balramji Dass Tandon Memorial Lecture organized by Panjab University on the issue of national security, Rajnath Sing said - ''What is happening in neighboring Afghanistan is raising new questions in terms of security and our government is constantly monitoring the developments there.,'' Singh said. He added, ''We have some more concerns which can become challenges from the point of view of national security. ''Along with the security of Indians, he said, ''Our government also wants that anti-national forces do not encourage terrorism from across the border by taking advantage of the development there.''

Singh went on to say that the Narendra Modi government was alert and capable of dealing with any situation.  ''We are always prepared to deal with threats arising from anywhere -- air, water, and land." The defense minister laid stress on continuously upgrading and updating the national security system to face new challenges and said that some new threats have emerged because of the development of modern technology. He referred to the dropping of two bombs using a drone at the Jammu air force station earlier this year.
