The Tokyo declaration reflected India’s oft repeated concern over terrorism emanating from across Afghanistan’s borders, which was expressed by Krishna in his address at the conclave.
Krishna, in a veiled reference to Pakistan, told the international community of the ‘existential threat’ Afghanistan faces terrorism emanating from across its borders. He said Afghanistan is fighting this threat ‘every day, and that it is ill equipped to repel in the absence of substantial assistance from the international community’.
The Conference endorsed key recommendations of the Delhi Summit on investment in Afghanistan to promote direct investment in the troubled country.
The International Community committed to taking concrete steps to promote private investment and trade by mobilizing relevant development finance institutions, export credit authorities, and other governmental and nongovernmental tools to encourage human and financial capital investments in Afghanistan.
