New Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani assured Modi that nothing would be done to harm India's security concerns in his country .
In a hard-hitting address at the summit in the morning, Ghani spoke about the role of state actors in fomenting terror
Ghani also spoke how he was not going to allow anybody to conduct a proxy war in Afghanistan.
External affairs ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said Modi also had fairly extensive discussions over the need for cooperation in tackling terror with Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina.
The other issue which figured prominently in the discussions was Saarc's failure to clinch three agreements meant to facilitate trade, connectivity and energy security in the form of a power grid which India believes could help a country like Pakistan which suffers from acute power shortages.
Modi's cabinet had only last week approved some of these to ensure these agreements were effected in Kathmandu.
