He was speaking after jointly inaugurating the annual Ministerial conference here along with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani which is being attended by Pakistan Prime Minister Foreign Affairs Adviser Sartaj Aziz along with representatives of around 30 countries.

In his speech during the opening of the 6 Heart of Asia conference in Amritsar, Prime Minister Modi identified four key issues in supporting Afghanistan, beginning with an Afghan-led, Afghan-owned and Afghan-controlled process.

Addressing the Heart of Asia Conference, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said peace in Afghanistan is imperative for peace and stability in the region.

The talks will be held on the sidelines of "Heart of Asia-Istanbul Process" conference, an global endeavour for peace and stability in war-ravaged Afghanistan.

Afghanistan's Economy Minister Abdul Sattar Murad, who is attending the conference, said on Saturday that the expectation from the conference is to work out multi-dimensional cooperation between the participating countries.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, who jointly inaugurated the annual Ministerial conference here along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, directly hit out at Pakistan for "launching an undeclared war" against his country and demanded an Asian or worldwide regime to verify Pak-sponsor terror operations.

Indian foreign ministry official Gopal Baglay, who oversees Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran, said several proposals were being discussed to improve Afghanistan's trade and transport links. He said, silence and inaction against terrorism in Afghanistan and in South Asia region will only embolden terrorists and their masters.

Organisers of the summit, founded in Istanbul in November 2011, said the aim was to strengthen confidence-building measures and initiate steps to counter narcotics and terrorism and to expand trade, commerce and investment opportunities in Afghanistan.

Mr. Jaitley said the choice of Amritsar as the venue for the Conference was a deliberate one meant to highlight the huge potential for regional connectivity and the benefits that it can bring to land-locked Afghanistan, provided concerned countries show the required sincerity and political determination.

Earlier, Aziz said that concerted action is needed for peaceful resolution of regional conflicts and the'blame games' will not help toward achieving peace - which is needed to boost regional cooperation and communication. PM Modi called for the submit to trap the terrorist agency.

"The Afghan Government has also signed peace agreement with Hizb-i-Islami Afghanistan (HIA)".

India had taken a great step and is hosting the Heart of Asia conference for the first time.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani slammed Pakistan for providing support and safe sanctuaries to terror groups including Taliban, accusing it of engaging in an "undeclared war" while many other leaders sought firm and decisive action to deal with the challenge.
