Abdullah gave this statement while addressing a session with the Council of Ministers here on Monday.
Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Raveesh Kumar informed that a meeting took place on January 10 between External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and the United States special envoy to Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad, where the officials shared their perspective on peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan.
India has been a key stakeholder in Afghanistan's peace and reconciliation process and has been pushing for an Afghan-led, Afghan-owned and Afghan-controlled peace process.
In November last year, India had participated in talks on Afghanistan peace process in Moscow at a non-official level. New Delhi sent two former diplomats to the meeting, which was also attended by Taliban leaders even though India has a policy on not engaging with the terrorist group.
Meanwhile, a 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue that recently took place in New Delhi between India and the United States, focused over the diplomatic stance of the two countries in stabilising peace in Afghanistan.
