Kabul: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday arrived in Kabul on a visit during which he is expected to hold talks with Afghan leadership, including President Ashraf Ghani, and inaugurate the Parliament building which has been constructed by India at a cost of $90 million.
Modi who flew in the early hours from Moscow, where he had annual summit talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, was received by Afghan national security adviser Mohammad Hanif Atmar and deputy foreign minister Hekmat Karzai.
“From Russia to Afghanistan. A pre-dawn arrival in Kabul begins a day of engagements with another dost,” External affairs ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.
Modi will be holding talks with Afghan leaders on key bilateral issues, including security co-operation and discuss the ways to help war-torn country where India has committed over two billion assistance.
