Afghan polls to strengthen democracy: SMK


“We admire the courage and determination of the Afghan voters and all the candidates in participating in this process despite the intimidation and violence which the opponents of democracy have subjected them to,” said External Affairs Minister S M Krishna. He reiterated India’s commitment to support the election process and the democratic institutions of Afghanistan.

Krishna congratulated the Afghan people, particularly the candidates, who despite the complex security environment and threats from terrorist groups, campaigned fearlessly, and the new voters who registered themselves in large numbers. “As a long-standing friend of the Afghan people, and a fellow member of South Asian Association for Religious Cooperation, it is gratifying to see the democratic process taking strong root in Afghanistan,” he added.
