New Delhi: After rising Covid-19 cases cancelled the visit of the leaders of five central Asian nations, the Ministry of External Affairs on Wednesday said India will host the Presidents of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan virtually. The summit will be held a day after Republic Day, which the five presidents were to attend as chief guests. The meeting is significant given that 3 of these 5 nations — Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan — share boundaries with Afghanistan, where Taliban takeover in August last year left India concerned.
