The Indian

Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached out to Afghanistan in his Independence Day

speech, calling the country a ‘good neighbor of India’.

Addressing

the Indian nation on the occasion of 73rd Independence Day of India, Modi said

“From the ramparts of the Red Fort, I give my greetings to the people of

Afghanistan who are marking 100 years of freedom.”

He also

launched a veiled attack on Pakistan a day after the Pakistani Prime Minister

Imran Khan threatened war against India amid Kashmir tensions.

Accusing

Pakistan for promoting terror in the region including in Afghanistan, Sri Lanka

and Bangladesh, Modi said “Those who give protection to terrorism and

support it must be completely exposed.”

The Indian

Prime Minister also added that “Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka are

also affected by terrorism. All countries in the world need to come together to

fight this menace.” 

This comes

as tensions remain high between India and Pakistan after New Delhi scrapped the

Article 370 revoking the special status granted to Jammu and Kashmir.
