Even though the Afghanistan Conference resolved to withdraw troops by 2014, the Kabul government has little incentive to take on the responsibility "as long as NATO remains the guarantor of Kabul's security." ++ However, the handover should not be put off indefinitely. ++ India and Pakistan should promote the peace process by cooperating more on the Afghan issue. ++ This would foster relations between the two states as well. ++ For that to happen, however, Islamabad will have to stop pretending "that it holds all the keys to Kabul."
