Terror can’t shape Afghan future: PM
NEW DELHI: Hours before his surprise stopover at Lahore, Prime Minister Narendra Modi flew to Kabul to inaugurate Afghanistan’s new parliament building built by India at a cost of $90 million.
Addressing the Afghan parliament, Modi said, “Afghanistan will succeed only when terrorism no longer flows across the border; when nurseries and sanctuaries of terrorism are shut; and, their patrons are no longer in business.”
“There are some who did not want us to be here. There were those who saw sinister designs in our presence here. There are others who were uneasy at the strength of our partnership. Some even tried to discourage us,” said Modi whose short Kabul visit was not announced for security reasons.
