India and US agreed to a formal trilateral consultations with Afghanistan on June 14, 2012.

“Today we agreed to move forward with a formal trilateral consultation among our three nations (India, US and Afghanistan,)” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters at a joint news conference with External Affairs Minister S M Krishna at the conclusion of the Strategic Dialogue during which Afghanistan was one of the major topics of discussions.

India has given its commitment to help build a better future for Afghanistan by helping them with more than USD 2 billion for development, supporting the New Silk Road Initiative, hosting the investment conference at the end of the month, providing security, training and support.

“I am very pleased that Afghanistan is getting this kind of encouragement and tangible support because it’s in everyone’s interests that Afghanistan be as secure and stable as possible,” Clinton said.

Afghanistan will need external support after the withdrawal foreign troops in 2014. India among other friends of Afghanistan wants to provide that external support to the extent that is possible. India has committed to help build the security force of Afghanistan which will consist of Afghans.  Once the security factor is taken care of Afghanistan would be able to find a solution within the four corners of their constitution.

“We are committed to build Afghan capacity for governance, development and security and to unlock its economic potential through regional integration” said India External Affairs Minister S M Krishna.
