The US Needs to Change Its Attitude Towards Indo-Afghan Relations
Afghanistan has always been a frontline state. Alexander came in 327 BCE, Babar in 1504 and the British in 1836. In 1843, it became the first country in South Asia to get independence from the British – more than a hundred years before India. In 1979, the Soviet Union entered Afghanistan and since 2001, United States and NATO forces have been there. The country has always been a coveted area for strategic influence.
