Kabul attack will not deter India: Manmohan Singh

New Delhi, March 5 (IANS) Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Friday said the ‘cowardly’ terror attack in Kabul last week ‘will not bend India’s determination’ to help Afghanistan.

The entire nation was outraged by the most brutal terror attack that killed six Indians and several Afghans, Manmohan Singh said in parliament.

This will not bend our determination to help Afghanistan, the prime minister said.

Manmohan Singh said Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai had telephoned him last week and assured him that steps will be taken to ensure the security of Indians there.

Suicide bombers struck at a hotel and a guest house Feb 26 in central Kabul, killing six Indians, including two army majors, an attack described by Indian Ambassador to Afghanistan Jayant Prasad as a ’26/11-like operation’.
