Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated Afghanistan’s Parliament building that was built by India. The building project was started by India in 2007 as a mark of friendship and cooperation to help rebuild Afghanistan after the wars. Modi will also address a joint session of the two Afghan Houses in the new Parliament complex.
India had invested some $2 billion in aid and reconstruction in Afghanistan and trained scores of officers. India also delivered 3 Russian Mi-25 helicopter gunships to Afghanistan recently.
The PM’s visit to Kabul was not officially announced for security reasons.
