Deputy Foreign Minister of Afghanistan Hekmat Karzai has called on MJ Akbar, Minister of State for External Affairs on March 16.
Karzai is on a visit to India for attending the International Counter Terrorism conference.
Both sides exchanged views on the situation in Afghanistan and reviewed progress in implementation of the development cooperation projects and the decisions taken during the visits of President Ghani to India last year.
Karzai apprised the Minister of the current security situation and efforts being made by the Government of Afghanistan towards peace and reconciliation in the country.
Akbar reiterated India’s commitment to continue to support the Government and the people of Afghanistan in their efforts to build a peaceful, stable, prosperous, and united country within which the democratic and pluralistic aspirations of people of country are met.
India was the first country Afghanistan chose to sign a strategic partnership agreement in 2011. Since then, however, India has significantly withdrawn from its strategic promises to Afghanistan for a number of reasons.
