Afghan president to visit India


10:30, September 29, 2011

NEW DELHI, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- Afghan President Hamid Karzai will visit India next week to seek India's support for the peace efforts in his country and promote economic cooperation with India, reported Indo-Asian News Service Wednesday.

Karzai will arrive here on Oct. 4 and is expected to hold talks with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and External Affairs Minister S. M. Krishna on the security situation in Afghanistan, in the aftermath of the Sept. 20 assassination of former Afghan President of Burhanuddin Rabbani.

Issues relating to expanding trade, commerce and connectivity with a view to making Afghanistan a hub for regional trade will figure in the discussions, said the report quoting a reliable source.

Last week, Afghan Foreign Minister Zalmay Rassoul unveiled a " New Silk Road" initiative to forge closer economic ties between Afghanistan and its neighboring countries.

In New Delhi, Karzai will also deliver a lecture on the India- Afghan relations at the Observer Research Foundation, a local think tank.
