What: A decade's deadliest quake struck the nation of Afghanistan and reported over 1,000 people lost their lives. This figure according to authorities can be much higher given the intensity of the earthquake
Why: New Delhi's move can possibly be seen from the Pakistani angle. The move has been a day late given the fact that the Pakistani minister announced aid and his country's support to Afghanistan. The further growing imprint of the Pakistani-based Haqqani network in Afghanistan might have worried India regarding the lack of its diplomatic presence, post takeover by the Taliban
Relief: Taking an incremental step toward reopening the Indian embassy in Afghanistan, Delhi Thursday sent a “technical team” to Kabul where it will be stationed at the embassy to coordinate the delivery of humanitarian aid.
