Modi writes to Afghan President, condemns terror attacks

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday wrote to Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani, condemning the terror attacks in Kabul and Kandhar.

“I was deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the dastardly attacks in Kabul and Kandahar. On behalf of the people and the Government of India and on my own personal behalf I offer our sincere condolences to the families of the bereaved and pray for early recovery of the injured,” Modi said in the letter.

“India condemns these attacks on Afghanistan, and on its legitimate authority. Such attacks are unacceptable and are aimed at undermining the progress made by the people of Afghanistan against all odds. These attacks deserve universal condemnation and their perpetrators and supporters need to be brought to justice,” he added, reiterating India’s support to Afghanistan in its fight against terrorism.
