First India-Central Asia Summit in Delhi today, Afghan crisis and trade to be discussed

New Delhi: The first summit on the ongoing crisis situation in Afghanistan is set to be held in New Delhi today to discuss connectivity, trade, building an institutional framework for cooperation and the situation in Afghanistan. The summit will also be attended by five Central Asian countries, from whom India will discuss the Afghan crisis under the policy with an extended neighbourhood.

Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan will attend the summit today. The leaders of these countries could not come to attend India's Republic Day celebrations on Wednesday due to the rapidly increasing cases of Corona in the country, but through virtual meetings, these leaders are attending the summit today. The five leaders have been invited as chief guests at the event, though no formal announcement has been made by any country.

According to media reports, the summit is expected to discuss a number of proposals that are expected to focus on trade and connectivity, development partnership, the institutional framework for cooperation, culture and people-to-people contact between the two countries. The proposals include making the India-Central Asia Summit a regular event, creation of a permanent secretariat to promote cooperation and synergy, and greater engagement at the ministerial level in areas such as trade, connectivity, defence, security and tourism.
