Abdullah in India for trade show as he expects to meet PM Modi
The chief executive of the government of national unity, Abdullah Abdullah, arrived in New Delhi, the capital of India, to participate in a trade exhibition and meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The chief executive’s office confirmed that Abdullah has arrived in New Dehi and will attend the Afghanistan-India trade and investment fair.
He will also meet with Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss issues of bilateral interest.
Abdullah was reportedly due to travel to India on Wednesday, but his flight was canceled after the attack on Hamid Karzai International Airport.
The attack by militants was launched around 11:10 am and continued until the late evening of the same day.
Security officials say the attack was launched by a group of at least four militants who had taken up positions inside a residential house.
Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish confirmed last night that a civilian was killed and eleven others were injured in the attack, citing preliminary information received by the ministry.
Taliban group spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said the plane of US Secretary of Defense James Mattis was the target.
