South Asia Situation “Extremely Dangerous”; India May Suffer: Ex-US NSA
“One of the greatest dangers I think would be India suffering this kind of cycle of sectarian violence that you see across the greater Middle East,” General (retired) HR McMaster told members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
America’s “humiliating” troop withdrawal from Afghanistan resulting in the Pakistan-backed Taliban capturing power in Kabul has created an “extremely dangerous” situation in South Asia where India could suffer a cycle of sectarian violence similar to the one seen in the Middle East, a former US NSA has said during a key Congressional hearing.
General (retired) HR McMaster said this during a Congressional hearing on Afghanistan on Wednesday.
“I think it’s an extremely dangerous situation in South Asia broadly…I do think that it is in China’s interest, right? That the Pakistani government and Army go after these jihadist groups less selectively. It’s also in the interest obviously of security and stability across South Asia.”
