Modi was referring to the Afghan government’s surprise announcement of the week-long ceasefire with the Taliban for the eve of Eid.
The ceasefire will be lasting from the 27th of Ramadan until the fifth day of the Eid-al-Fitr. President Ghani had tweeted last week, indicating it could run from June 12th to 19th.
Responding to Ghani’s announcement, the Taliban yesterday announced the suspension of fighting for the first three days of Eid – the first ceasefire by the militant group in Afghanistan since the year 2001 United States invasions.
India and China had agreed to undertake a joint economic project in an Afghanistan. They have decided to move forward in identifying a specific plan initially in the area of capacity building in Afghanistan.

Since the year 2002, India has committed USD 2 billion to the socio-economic rebuilding of war-torn Afghanistan.
