External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today said, India is committed to partner with Afghanistan in its efforts to emerge as a united, peaceful, secure, inclusive and economically vibrant nation.

In a message at the inaugural event for training of Afghan Diplomats as part of joint programme with China, Mrs Swaraj said, India and Afghanistan are close neighbours and strategic partners. 

The Minister said, development partnership, based on the priorities of the Government and the people of Afghanistan has been the cornerstone of the multifaceted bilateral cooperation. 

Guided by the vision of ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’, the Indian Government has embarked on an ambitious development partnership programme with commitment of over three billion dollars. Mrs Swaraj said, high priority is attached to enable Afghanistan to tap the true potential of its talented youth. 

She said, we are chartering a new course with the beginning of a training programme for ten diplomats from Afghanistan in partnership with China. 

The seeds for joint cooperation in Afghanistan were sown at the meeting between the Prime Minister of India and the President of China when they met in Wuhan in April this year.
