Shaheen told anchor Ghareeda Farooqi that Indian investment would remain safe in Afghanistan and the Taliban would welcome if New Delhi wants more investment in his country.

Meanwhile, Indian media is accusing Pakistan and its intelligence services of being behind the Afghan Taliban and playing key role in their victory, a claim Islamabad denies.
