AFGHANISTAN AND THE CHICAGO SUMMIT: A PERSPECTIVE FROM SOUTH ASIA

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) 25th summit was held in Chicago on 20 and 21 May. While the biennial event had a broad based agenda the main issue was Afghanistan given the current operational commitment of the Alliance. With over 60 leaders from across the globe attending this meet a number of significant decisions with respect to the country were taken during the Summit, including transition from operational to support and training role by NATO in 2013, pull out by 2014 and extended support beyond. Financial support to Afghan National Security Forces was a key agenda point. Despite these positive developments the Summit has raised a number of concerns particularly in relation to evolution of the security situation in Afghanistan, talks with the Taliban and support of Pakistan in stabilization including opening of the NATO supply route. India was not an invitee in Chicago but may play an important role in the post 2014 scenario.
