New Delhi/UNI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has directed the Ministry of External Affairs to brief floor leaders of political parties on the developments in Afghanistan, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said Monday.

He said that Prahlad Joshi, the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, would inform the parties of the details.

“In view of developments in Afghanistan, PM @narendramodi has instructed that MEA brief Floor Leaders of political parties. Minister of Parliamentary Affairs @JoshiPralhad will be intimating further details,” he tweeted.
