It is understood that Ghani briefed Modi about the status of the peace process in the war-ravaged country.
India has always been favouring an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process to bring peace and stability in that country.
India has also been actively involved in reconstruction efforts in war-ravaged Afghanistan. Since 2002, India has committed $2 billion for the socio-economic development of the country.
