External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid Saturday said that India will continue to assist the Afghan national security forces in whatever manner possible.
He inaugurated an Indian-supported agricultural university, a major capacity-building initiative in Kandahar.
Addressing the inauguration attended by Afghan President Hamid Karzai, Khurshid said, “India will continue to assist the Afghanistan National Agricultural Sciences and Technology University (ANASTU) in whatever manner is possible within our capacities. We have always said a peaceful, prosperous and sovereign Afghanistan capable of defending itself is in India’s strategic interest,” he said.
Khurshid also hailed Karzai’s leadership, saying the upcoming presidential elections were a “testament to the fact that democracy has taken firm roots in this country”.
