India has proposed to host a meet of the National Security Advisors (NSA) on Afghanistan in Delhi around 11-12 November, reports Economic Times.

As per the sources, key stakeholders in the region, including Russia, China, and Pakistan, have been invited to the meet. The NSA of Pakistan, Moeed Yusuf, has received the invitation for the meet and if he attends the meet this will be his first visit to India in this capacity.

The conference is an attempt by India to play a key role in Afghanistan's future and at the same time address the humanitarian crisis in the war-ravaged country.

NSA Ajit Doval is expected to chair the conference that is being organised by National Security Council Secretariat.

At the same time, India will participate in the Moscow Format meeting on Afghanistan on 20 October which will bring Indian officials face to face with Taliban for first time since the formation of the interim government in the country.
