New Delhi: In a veiled reference to Pakistan, External Affairs Minister SM Krishna said that terrorism emanating from outside Afghanistan borders posed potent threat to many countries.

These statements coming in the context of the ongoing summit in Bonn to discuss the future of Afghanistan. Indian Foreign Minister made the statement and reiterated India's stand against terrorism.

"Well I think my speech today was mainly focused on the terrorist activities which emanates from across the borders and then again terrorist finding safe havens in across the borders. I think these are the twin problems which Afghanistan is facing and which many nations are facing. So it is necessary to address this scourge of terror from this angle," he said.

"Specially, in the light of the strategic partnership that we have struck with Afghanistan, our bonds have become much stronger and this conference which is being held in Bonn is an important milestone in shaping the future of Afghanistan. India's interest is that Afghanistan should develop itself as a self reliant nation," he added.
