Prime Minister Modi talks with German Chancellor about Taliban issue.
The main reason for the international community’s headache is Afghanistan is ruled by the Taliban at the moment. Everything seems to have changed in an instant after the militant regime came to power.
The equation of international relations has also changed. In this situation, all countries are concerned about the safe rescue of their citizens from Afghanistan. Many countries are interested in working through joint negotiations.
As part of that move, Prime Minister Narendra Modi called German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday night to discuss important issues.
In addition to Afghanistan, the two sides discussed several bilateral issues, according to PMO sources.
According to sources in the Prime Minister’s Office, Modi called Merkel on Monday night. The two discussed rescuing civilians stranded in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.
Later, Modi himself tweeted. He said that in addition to the Afghanistan issue, he also discussed several bilateral issues between India and Germany, such as the Covid deal, trade, and the economy.
He also said that the German chancellor was in favor of focusing on peacekeeping. He also said that it must ensure the security aspect.
Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden and British Prime Minister Borris Johnson also discussed the Afghan issue by phone on Monday.
By the way, Boris Johnson called an emergency meeting of the G-7 group on Tuesday. His main problem: the situation in Afghanistan. His earlier conversations with Biden were deemed crucial.
Furthermore, the discussions between Prime Minister Modi and the German Chancellor are particularly significant. In other words, Afghanistan, once occupied by the Taliban, has now become the leading cause of headaches worldwide.
And different countries are interested in taking action hand in hand with that. At least, that is clear from the phone conversations of state leaders.
