Theyre in Pakistan. In the western tribal areas, although it also extends down into Balochistan, The Nation quoted Holbrooke, as saying.
He said that the United States considers India as an important ally in its war on terror in Afghanistan even though New Delhi is not directly related to the core of the issue.
India is not part of the problem but theyre certainly a major factor in resolving the situation in Afghanistan. India is a great regional power, so we consult India closely every step of the way, Holbrooke added. (ANI)
