KABUL (Pajhwok): Afghanistan expects India to send a clear message to the Taliban to renounce violence and preserve the gains of the past two decades.

In an interview aired on Saturday, the Afghan ambassador to India hoped the world’s biggest democracy would continue backing democratic values and gains in Afghanistan

Farid Mamundzay, speaking to CNN News-18, acknowledged India had legitimate concerns about the situation in Afghanistan.

More than 20 terror outfits, supported by that Taliban, are reportedly active in Afghanistan, with some directly targeting Indian interests.

In recent months, top Indian officials have indicated several times that they are trying to reach out to the Taliban a marked departure from New Delhi’s policy of not engaging with non-state actors.

But the channel reported New Delhi had not yet made any significant progress in being able to talk to the head of the Taliban’s political office, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar.
