Updated: Sep 11, 2017 11:20

STORY: Afghanistan Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani arrived in New Delhi on Sunday (September 10) to co-chair the Indo-Afghan strategic partnership council meeting with his Indian counterpart Sushma Swaraj.

Rabbani, who is on a three-day visit, will discuss key bilateral and regional issues such as security situation in the war-torn country and Indian assistance in various development projects.

Relations between Afghanistan and India received a major boost in 2011 with the signing of a strategic partnership agreement, Afghanistan’s first since the Soviet invasion of 1979.

Rabbani will also call on Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other leaders.

India is the largest regional provider of humanitarian and reconstruction aid to Afghanistan.

India has poured in nearly $2 billion into Afghanistan reconstruction projects and humanitarian aid, making it one of the largest donors to the war-torn country. New Delhi also trains police and army officers at military colleges in India.
