New Delhi: Dr Happymon Jacob speaks with India’s Ambassador to Thailand, Afghanistan and Myanmar, Vivek Katju, about India’s attendance at the recently concluded summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) as guest of honour and the subsequent OIC resolution condemning India’s actions in Kashmir.

How does one understand these opposing signals?

The conversation also discusses the developing geopolitical situation in Afghanistan and its implications for India. Who is to benefit from the US withdrawal from Afghanistan? Is the Taliban capable of power sharing or will it remain under the strong influence of Pakistan?

Ambassador Katju also discusses the Balakot air strikes and how they have fundamentally altered the escalation ladder between India and Pakistan.
