Any aggression will be responded in a befitting way: Ghani

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani during his meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that Afghanistaninfo-icon wants regional security and stability but any aggression will be responded in a befitting manner.

A statement from the Presidential Palace said that Modi on Friday met Ghani in Ufa where the two leaders discussed Afghanistan's security situation and India's assistance in reconstructioninfo-icon efforts in the war-torn country.

The two leaders met on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit in this Russian city, shortly after the Indian leader held a meeting with Pakistaninfo-icon Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

The two leaders discussed Afghanistan's security, particularly in the context of post-2014 when most of the foreign troops pulled out of the country.

"Our aim and target is peace and reconciliation in the country but we will respond any aggression," Ghani told his interlocutor.

Ghani had visited New Delhi in April when Modi had told him that India would walk shoulder-to-shoulder with the people of Afghanistan in a "mission of global importance".

Modi had said that India's assistance to Afghanistan was an enduring commitment and not limited to the period of transition or the decade of transformation.

"We will continue this journey in partnership with President Ghani and his National Unity Government with Chief Executive Dr Abdullah Abdullah," the prime minister had said.

India has so far invested over $2 billion in several projects including in infrastructure and social sectors for reconstruction of Afghanistan.
