India to open military hospital outside Tajikistan capital Dushanbe

Full Story: The Times of India 20 Nov

The Times of India reports that India has decided to establish a 20-bed military field hospital outside the Tajik capital Dushanbe before the coming winters. The hospital would cater to both civilians and Tajik military personnel.

The newspaper is of the opinion that the presence of India near Afghanistan would give India a "firmer presence  in the strategically crucial region, and a better view of Afghanistan" specially after US troop withdrawal and "a desperate scramble by Pakistan to establish strategic depth in the country."
