Giving information, the Prime Minister’s Office said, “The leaders discussed the recent developments in Afghanistan and its implications for the region and the world. He categorically condemned the horrific terror attack at Kabul International Airport, which resulted in many casualties.”
Along with this, the PMO said, “He emphasized the importance of a stable and secure Afghanistan and discussed the possible role of India and the European Union in this context. The two leaders agreed to remain in touch on bilateral and global issues, particularly the situation in Afghanistan.
Let us tell you that the talks between the two leaders on Afghanistan came at a time when the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) headed by India passed a strong resolution demanding that the territory of Afghanistan be used to threaten or threaten any country. Should not be used for harboring terrorists. The resolution expects the Taliban to abide by its commitments to allow Afghans and all foreign nationals to leave the country in a safe and orderly manner.
The Security Council on Monday adopted a resolution sponsored by France, Britain and the US, with 13 members voting in favor and no vote against it, and permanent, veto-holding members Russia and China absent.
