Increasing strategic presence in Afghanistan is “one of the factors” India may consider to put pressure on Pakistan, Army chief General Deepak Kapoor said on Wednesday. He, however, made it clear that the decision would be a political one.

“Changing our strategic policy towards Kabul in terms of raising military stakes is one of the factors that is to be determined politically,” he said. Indian has provided $850 million assistance to Afghanistan, but has steered clear from direct military engagement with Kabul.
