New Delhi:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi today strongly condemned the bomb blast in Kabul and underlined the need for defeating forces supporting terrorism.

Modi, who is in Spain on a visit, said India stands with Afghanistan in fighting all forms of terrorism.

“We strongly condemn the terrorist blast in Kabul. Our thoughts are with the families of the deceased & prayers with the injured,” he tweeted.

In another tweet, he said, “Forces supporting terrorism need to be defeated.”

The prime minister’s message came after a powerful truck bomb killed at least nine people and wounded scores of others in the Afghanistan capital’s diplomatic quarter today morning.
