India, China Train Afghan Diplomats, Enhance Trilateral Cooperation



The second joint training program of Afghan Diplomats by India and China began on Monday with the engagement of ten young Afghan diplomats. The program is an intensive two-week course targeted for capacity building organized by India’s Ministry of External Affairs at New Delhi-based Foreign Service Institute (FSI).

The routine will include training modules on various topics covering India’s foreign policy, key international issues, multilateral diplomacy, and diplomatic skills.

The project is aimed to provide the diplomats with exposure to modern India’s economic and technological developments, and also undertake exploratory visits to get a better understanding of the rich cultural heritage of India.

The first joint training of Afghan diplomats at the Indian Foreign Service Institute was launched on October 15-26,2018 which was the first step in China-India-Afghanistan cooperation that was agreed at a summit between President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi the same year.

Chinese Ambassador to India, Sun Weidong, in his speech while addressing the diplomats said, “the three sides – China, India, and Afghanistan – could explore the possibility of expanding cooperation into the field of joint capacity-building program, consistently enriching the trilateral cooperation and create a new paradigm for the trilateral cooperation.”

The Chinese Envoy at the same meeting stated “As responsible countries of the region, China and India can also explore ways to apply their successful experience of cooperation with Afghanistan to other countries in the region.

We can work hand in hand with partners to consolidate the prospects of regional stability and prosperity, and open a new chapter for regional cooperation between China and India.

The joint training of Afghan diplomats by India and China is visualized by the Indian Government as a long term trilateral partnership between the countries for the benefit of the three adjacent countries.
