PM to visit Afghanistan

PM to visit Afghanistan

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will soon visit Afghanistan, with New Delhi and Kabul quietly working on probable dates.

Unlike his other foreign tours, Modi’s visit to Afghanistan is likely to be a low-key affair, ostensibly due to security concerns.  

New Delhi is likely to formally announce the visit just days before the prime minister commences his tour, which will however send a strong signal about India’s long-term commitment to security and development of war-ravaged Afghanistan.

The prime minister supports the people of Afghanistan and the construction of Salma dam—a hydroelectric and irrigation project in the western region of the country.

 Sources told Deccan Herald that construction of both Afghan Parliament complex in Kabul and Salma Dam in heart province of Afghanistan had neared completion.

The projects are among the several projects India embarked upon to mark its support to the development and democracy in Afghanistan.
