Afghan President Ashraf Ghani today called up Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday and condemned the “cross border attack” in Uri while expressing solidarity with India to eliminate the threat of terrorism, a PMO statement said.

Heavily armed militants suspected to be from Pakistan-based JeM had stormed an army base in Uri in Kashmir on Sunday, killing 18 soldiers.

President Ghani also expressed his condolences to the families of the martyred soldiers.

The Prime Minister thanked President Ghani for Afghanistan’s support.
