SAMARKAND(UZBEK­ISTAN): In­dia on Sun­day said it was com­mit­ted to the eco­nomic re­con­struc­tion of Afghanistan and to pro­mote an in­clu­sive “Afghan-led, Afghanowned and Afghan-con­trolled” peace and rec­on­cil­i­a­tion process in the war-torn coun­try.

In­dia’s po­si­tion was enun­ci­ated by ex­ter­nal af­fairs min­is­ter Sushma Swaraj at the his­toric In­dia-cen­tral Asia Di­a­logue here, with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of Afghanistan, which fo­cussed on a plethora of re­gional is­sues in­clud­ing en­hanc­ing con­nec­tiv­ity to the coun­try rav­aged by ter­ror­ism.

“No busi­ness de­vel­op­ment, no in­vest­ment can take place in a coun­try suf­fer­ing from ter­ror­ism,”

Swaraj said.
