India approves more projects in Afghanistan

New Delhi, Feb 1 (IANS) India on Monday approved the third phase of 92 small development projects in Afghanistan.

External affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup tweeted that Sushma Swaraj had approved the “strategic partnership for the benefit of (Afghan) people”.

Earlier, Abdullah Abdullah called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
