Afghan President Ashraf Ghani called on Tuesday for regional cooperation to defeat violent extremist groups, saying after meeting the Indian prime minister that he wants to "make Afghanistan a graveyard of terror" but needs help from India, Pakistan and other neighbors.

Ghani's visit to India comes amid his efforts to forge closer ties with neighbors Pakistan and China, prompting some Indian analysts to fret that New Delhi may be losing influence in Afghanistan.

"Terror cannot be classified into good and bad. It cannot be differentiated," Ghani said, after meeting India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi during a three-day state visit.

"We must have a unified approach, we must be united both in the region and globally to contain this terror."

Modi, for his part, pledged continued support for Afghanistan's fight against the Taliban and other violent extremists and renewed commitment to developing both land and sea trade routes with the country.
