New Delhi (Sputnik) —  Offering his condolences to the victims of Wednesday’s NY terror attack during a telephone conversation with President Trump, PM Modi reiterated his commitment to the bilateral fight against the global terrorism. 

Moreover, the White House also confirmed in a statement that “the two leaders agreed on the further promotion of the bilateral antiterrorism fight”.

Earlier in a tweet, the Indian Prime Minister condemned the recent attack which is being described as the deadliest in New York since 9/11.

Meanwhile, according to Pakistan’s leading English daily The Dawn, the US has reportedly shared with Pakistan a list of 20 terrorist groups that Washington believes are operating from Pakistan soil to target India and Afghanistan.

The October 31 attack, which constitutes the most lethal terror attack on New York City since 9/11, left eight people dead and eleven injured. Daesh terrorist group reportedly claimed reponsibility for the attack.
