India Rejects Trump Jeer at Modi Over Afghanistan Library

In this deployment what have the soldiers done at the border? According to one report “very little.”

The sources said also India has been implementing a range of mega infrastructure projects as well as carrying out community development programmes in Afghanistan as per requirement of its people.

Modi's bearhug of the US President had embarrassed many Indians and apparently took even Trump by surprise. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter announced that the US would boycott the Olympics that year taking place in Moscow in response to the Soviet presence in Afghanistan. Following a December 23 meeting with the governor of Nangarhar district, Gen. Scott Miller, commander of US and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces in Afghanistan, told Afghanistan's TOLOnews agency, "I have seen the same rumors you have from the newspapers [on withdrawals], but all I would assure you is, first of all, I have no orders, so nothing changed. Library! That's like five hours of what we spend (in Afghanistan)", Trump told his cabinet colleagues.

"If we can go to Pakistan and put a free trade agreement on the table to get the Pakistanis to push the Taliban to the peace table, and you can end the Afghan war", he added. "I'm not happy with what he's done in Afghanistan", he said. "I don't like being taken advantage of", he said.

There was no immediate response from the White House to a request for clarification if Trump's remarks reflected a change in the administration's policy and if India is expected to contribute troops.

India has also been supplying military equipment and providing training to Afghan security personnel, they said. Both the Congress and the BJP have been engaged in a bitter verbal tussle over a host of issues.

"India firmly believes in the critical role that developmental assistance can play in transforming human lives".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi (left) meeting the President of United States of America Donald Trump in Manila, Philippines. One shows Russian President Vladimir Putin appreciating Trump using a doormat with USA intelligence emblazoned across it, and another has Trump wearing a long, red Russian tie asking "What ties to Russia?"

"Senior administration officials said that the president has been known to affect an Indian accent and imitate Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who in an Oval Office meeting past year told him, "Never has a country given so much away for so little in return" as the United States in Afghanistan", said the Washington Post report.

This is not the first time Trump has mocked at the Indian PM.

President Trump had then been quoted as saying: "When they (Harley-Davidson) send a motorcycle to India, as an example, they have to pay 100 per cent tax - 100 per cent". He said that Modi was "constantly telling me he built a library in Afghanistan", reported the Agence France-Presse.

Asserting that the Afghan war costs billions of dollars to the US, Trump said, "I want people to treat us fairly".
