President Donald Trump is set to discuss with his national security team the US' strategy in South Asia, including developing a new regional policy for resolving the long-running conflict in Afghanistan that may include both India and Pakistan.
Trump will meet the team tomorrow at Camp David, a picturesque presidential retreat in Maryland, nearly 100 kms from Washington DC.
"The President along with the Vice President will meet with the National Security Team on Friday at Camp David to discuss the South Asia strategy," it said.
During the Bush administration and the initial years of the Obama administration, Pakistan had successfully managed to keep India out of major strategic conferences on Afghanistan.
However, the successive administrations in the US have acknowledged the role of India in the development and reconstruction of Afghanistan.
After the US, India is one of the largest donors for developmental projects in Afghanistan.
