He said that there are 31 militant groups in Afghanistan and stressed for joint efforts to defeat terrorism from the war-torn country.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his opening remarks termed terrorism as the biggest threat to Afghanistan’s peace and the region.

He slammed Ashraf Ghani for hurling baseless allegations against Pakistan and called for evolving a joint and purposeful strategy for lasting peace in Afghanistan.
