India: No Indian troops on Afghanistan soil — Indian defence minister tells Mattis

Indian Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman re-asserted to US Defence Secretary James Mattis that India will not deploy troops in Afghanistan, at a press conference in New Delhi, India, Tuesday. Although India has given medical assistance to the region, as well as military training for Afghanistan troops, Sitharaman told Mattis that «There shall not be any Indian boots on the ground in Afghanistan... Еще» during their meeting. India has provided $3 billion (£2.23 billion) in aid to Afghanistan, as well as military training, since 2001.
