Modi and the President of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani met to end state-sponsored terrorism. Already, India and Afghanistan have a good relationship, regarding trade and bilateral issues. This recent meeting will further enhance their relationship in all areas, and their agreement on how terrorism should be fought was a good development. Afghanistan is already facing a nightmare every day with terror attacks and innocent civilians becoming victims. With the new strategy, both countries can help each other regarding terrorism and other important issues, like education, healthcare, agriculture, skill development and women’s empowerment, which both countries are currently highlighting. I hope this meeting will bring closer ties. Both nations are against terrorism and want to contribute to a peaceful and stable region.
