A report by the US parliament says that Pakistan considers the Taliban in Afghanistan a relatively 'favorable and credible anti-India element' as it fears a strategic takeover by New Delhi.  Due to regional rivalry with Pakistan, India has large interests with Afghanistan.

 The Congressional Research Service (CRS) in its latest report on Afghanistan has described Pakistan as the most important neighbor of Afghanistan.  The report said that Pakistan played an active role in Afghanistan's affairs for many decades, but in many respects played a negative role.  The CRS produces reports for US lawmakers on important topics so that they can make easy decisions.

 The report said, "Pakistan's security establishments are feared to be strategically surrounded by India, due to which it clearly considers the Taliban in Afghanistan to be a relatively favorable and credible anti-India element".  According to the report, 'India's diplomatic and commercial presence in Afghanistan - and America's support for it increases fears of Pakistan's siege.  India's interest in Afghanistan is a product of extensive regional rivalry with Pakistan.  These interests force India to establish stronger and more direct commercial and political relations with Central Asia. '

 The report stated, 'Pakistan's security services maintained links with Afghanistan's rebel groups, particularly the Haqqani Network, a foreign terrorist organization (FTO) declared by the US and now officially a Taliban-based quasi-terrorist.  Has become an autonomous component. '  The CRS report states, "Pakistan prefers a weak and unstable Afghanistan rather than a strong and organized Afghanistan (especially leading a Pashtun-dominated government in Kabul)."
