Video Blogging from the UN: Indian Ambassador Talks Afghanistan

Moments ago I spoke with the Indian Ambassador to the UN Manjeev Singh Puri about India’s policies toward Afghanistan. (I’ve long lamented the fact that Indian’s role in the conflict in Afghanistan is rarely discussed–both by media figures and in official circles. ) Alas, I could not shake him much from his talking points, but I found his explanation of Indian interests vis-a-vis Afghanistan to be a very good distillation of official Indian foreign policy.
