The statements come in a time that the close relation between Kabul and New Delhi has sparked reactions in the level of the region.
Pakistan which has fragile and sensitive relations with Afghanistan and exercising a hostile relation with New Delhi, expresses more concern than other countries. However, Indian and Afghan authorities considering their friendly relations as an example of good regional cooperation and ask the other countries of the region to follow such policy. Due this policy, Dr. Abdullah in New Delhi strongly focused and emphasized on expansion of regional cooperation.
Dr. Abdullah regarding to the recent statements of Pakistani foreign minister delivered in UN General Assembly Sessions in which expressing concern over close relation between India and Afghanistan called it against Pakistan’s interests and shamelessly claimed that Afghanistan in its international relation showed follow Pakistan.

In the meantime, political elites say China the eastern neighbor of Afghanistan that has territorial problem with India, also concerns about close relations of India and Afghanistan. However, that country which has close relations with Pakistan, publically have showed no any concern so far in that regard.
Dr. Abdullah the executive chief of Afghan government regarding the role of China in the region says that Afghanistan and China are exercising high level of cooperation and Afghanistan knows that China has relations and links with other countries, but it is an open fact that terrorism also threats China and this provide the ground for further cooperation between Afghanistan and China.
The Executive Chief of Afghan National Unity Government during his visit to India has signed agreements with his Indian counterparts according to which India trains Afghan police.
In addition, Dr. Abdullah in his visit with Indian prime minister asked him that New Delhi to help in treatment of Afghan national forces troops who injured in fighting against terrorism. Indian side committed to respond to the demand after assessment in near future. 
According to Afghan political elites the increasing desire of Afghan and Indian authorities for strengthening relation between the two countries especially on regional issues, can further deepen the already close and friendly relation between the two countries. India is among five donor countries that assist Afghanistan. Afghan people and their international friends believe expansion of relation between Kabul and New Delhi can help in restoring political and economic stability to Afghanistan.
