New Delhi's soft diplomacy in quake-hit Kabul

  • 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.
