PM Modi to visit Afghanistan-first stop in his five-nation trip
New Delhi, June 3 (IBNS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Afghanistan on Saturday-for the second time in six months- to hold talks with President Ashraf Ghani and inaugurate the Afghan-India Friendship Dam in Herat province.
Announcing the visit, ministry of external affairs (MEA) spokesperson Vikas Swarup said the meeting between Modi and Ghani will also provide an opportunity to discuss the current situation in Afghanistan and chart out ways of further cooperation for bringing peace and stability in that country.
Afghanistan is the first stop in Modi’s five-nation trip, which will also take him to Qatar, Switzerland, the US and Mexico.
Last year, Modi and Afghan President Ghani had jointly dedicated to the Afghan nation the new Parliament Building constructed under India-Afghanistan development cooperation.
