Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday night wrapped up his Russia visit, during which the two countries signed 16 pacts to expand cooperation in various sectors, including nuclear and defence.

The PM arrived in Afghan Capital Kabul on Friday morning from Moscow. 

In Kabul, he is expected to inaugurate the new building of the Afghan Parliament constructed by India at a cost of about USD 90 million.

During his stay in Russia, Modi held annual summit talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Kremlin and underlined the need for the world to unite against terrorism "without distinction and discrimation between terrorist groups and target countries."

As part of the 16th annual India-Russia Summit, Modi and Putin held a one-on-one meeting before they were joined by their respective delegations. (With PTI inputs)
