US Af-Pak Policy: Relevance for India and the EU

Policy Study


As a precursor to a five-day visit from European Parliament Delegation to India for the EU-India Interparliamentary meeting, the National Maritime Foundation and the Foundation for European Progressive Studies initiated a substantive debate on an issue of equally great concern to the European Union and India. The cordial and frank exchange of views was shaped by genuine and well-informed interest from both sides.  This round table discussion made an important contribution to a better understanding of Indian analyses of the unfolding crisis in Afghanistan and Pakistan among the Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), while the Indian strategic community was able to gain an insight into the opportunities and constraints the EU sees for its engagement in the region.
