Don't know who's using it (the library) in Afghanistan, " Trump said. We are supposed to say, oh thank you for the library. But he is constantly telling me, he built a library in Afghanistan. "They should be fighting", Trump said. Why should America be there, "which is 6000 miles away?"
However, it was unclear what project was referred, but India has promised to provide assistance worth $3 billion to Afghanistan since 2001.
The Afghan NSA invited Doval to visit Afghanistan.
Afghan President Ashraf Ghani had visted India previous year and held wide-ranging talks with Modi on ways to further boost bilateral cooperation.
Trump has on Wednesday, mocked Modi over funding a "library" in Afghanistan worth $3 billion saying he does not know who will that work in Afghanistan.
Policies pursued by Trump continue to play havoc with global politics, and India has no option but to factor it into its own geopolitical calculus.
But India's role has alarmed its arch-rival Pakistan, whose intelligence service's continued ties to extremists in Afghanistan has been seen by analysts in part as a way to counter New Delhi.
"India is not driven by commercial or short-term strategic gains".
The piece goes on to slam Trump's "utterly false narrative" about the war by lining out its history and elaborating on how the Soviets tried to justify their invasion. "We want to help other nations", Trump told reporters in response to a question.
Meanwhile, the president also addressed the U.S.'s ongoing presence in Afghanistan, complaining about its cost.
But Pence said the United States was not "giving up on the fight" against IS militants and Washington was "going to continue to lean into the fight". And literally they went bankrupt; they went into being called Russian Federation again, as opposed to the Soviet Union. The American mantra has been that India was rendering invaluable help to Afghanistan.

Iraqis denounce Trump visit, United States troop presence
Trump has not announced any plans to remove any of the 5,200 troops in Iraq and has never made any promises that he will. And CNN's Jim Acosta wondered Wednesday on "The Situation Room" if Trump had turned the visit into "a campaign stop".
No plans to remove United States troops from Iraq: Donald Trump
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said Ankara will intervene in the coming months against ISIS and the YPG. The White House, in confirming Erdogan extended the invitation, said there are no "definite" plans for a trip yet.
The Soviet Union also presented itself as the true defenders of Muslim Afghans, who were under attack by "imperialism", and suggested that the United States was planning to use Afghanistan as a way to subvert the U.S.S.R.
For India, these developments may appear discouraging, but a more pragmatic view is necessary to deal with all possible outcomes.
With each development project, India has gained a foothold of credibility and goodwill in the minds of the Afghan people and strengthened the domestic dispensation in the war-ravaged country. I said, 'Why don't you let them fight?' Why are we getting in the middle of it?
"There is no doubt that every player has its own stakes in Afghanistan".
"What we have been told (by the US) is that this is (based on) a planning process for different scenarios", said Afghan National Security Advisor Hamdullah Mohib. Afghan's economic stability is more important amid political process and peace process, which has been destroyed for long.
India has pledged more than $3 billion in aid and is now implementing several high-impact development projects across Afghanistan.
But Trump's assertion that Russian Federation was "right to be there" conflicts with the fact that the USA strongly opposed the invasion and supported the guerilla insurgency that ultimately forced the Soviets to leave in 1988.
To begin with, it is time to recognise that the U.S.'s South Asia Strategy for Afghanistan, as announced by Mr. Trump in August 2017, has been discarded.
"Even the American establishment understands the importance of investing in civilian infrastructure and primary education".
Trump's comments, coming with the usual exhortation of how good a friend Modi is, serves as a reminder of how confounding the US-India relationship is now: sometimes warm and sometimes utterly transactional depending on Trump's mood. Earlier a year ago he rebuffed Modi's import tariff cuts on Harley Davidson bikes.
Trump's fascination for India has been all about Modi's utility for the "America First" project. The appointment of special envoy Zalmay Khalilzad in September to lead talks with the Taliban after a particularly brutal year shows that the U.S.is no longer waiting for military operations to take effect.
