Bipin Rawat

New Delhi: Army Chief General Bipin Rawat on Wednesday said that talks with the Taliban, if held, should be without any preconditions whatsoever.

“Yes, there should be talks with Taliban so long as they do not come out with any preconditions and so long as they are looking at lasting peace in Afghanistan to bring about stability in that country,” Rawat said in response to a question at a session on terrorism in the 2019 Raisina Dialogue, India’s flagship annual geopolitical and geostrategic conference. “It is in our interest, it is in the region’s interest, it is in Pakistan’s interest. We all want stability,” he said. (IANS)
