Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee on Tuesday met Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai and exchanged views on the developments in the war-ravaged country.
India has voiced serious concerns over the regrouping of Taliban and Al Qaeda elements, who had taken refuge in Pakistan during the United States-led action.
Vajpayee is understood to have extended India's continued support to the rebuilding of Afghanistan.
Vajpayee also met his Sri Lankan counterpart Ranil Wickremesinghe and discussed developments in the Norwegian efforts to bring peace to the island nation.
He also had another bilateral meeting with his counterpart from Portugal, Jose Manauel Durao Barroso.
