Afghan envoy to New Delhi Shaida Abdali has said that India and Afghanistan must stand together to free the two countries from terrorism.
Speaking in New Delhi on Monday, Abdali condemned the terror attack in Jalalabad in which several people, including a number of Sikhs, were killed.
In a clear reference to Pakistan, Abdali said India and Afghanistan have been victims of terrorism from a “common source” and the time has come for the international community to deal with it effectively.
He said Afghanistan has been a victim of terrorism almost on a daily basis but it has the resolve to defeat the menace.
The Afghan envoy said though the attack has been claimed by the Islamic State group, it is a fact that terrorism into Afghanistan is coming from across border.
