Prime Minister Narendra Modi has written to President Hamid Karzai extending greetings for Afghanistan's Independence Day with a promise to continue India's full support to the efforts to build a strong, united, peaceful, democratic and prosperous Afghanistan.

"India will continue to extend its full support to the government and people of Afghanistan in their efforts to build a strong, peaceful, united, democratic and prosperous Afghanistan," he underlined.

"I take this opportunity to convey my best wishes for Your Excellency's good health and well-being, as also for the progress and prosperity of the friendly people of Afghanistan," Modi wrote.
