Ghani to visit India ahead of Pakistan trip

Ghani to visit India ahead of Pakistan trip

Oct 17, 2017 - 18:39

KABUL (Pajhwok): President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani is expected to visit India in two weeks before his trip to Pakistan, a reliable source said on Tuesday.

Earlier, Pakistan chief of army staff Javed Qamar Bajwa invited President Ghani to visit Islamabad. Afghan ambassador to Islamabad Hazrat Omar Zakhelwal said the president accepted the invitation.

However, he said, the details and time of the visit would be ascertained and determined after both countries held joint consultations.

On the other hand, India’s National Security Advisor Ajit Doval met with President Ghani and CEO Abdullah Abdullah on Monday in Kabul.

Doval reportedly extended an invitation on behalf of Prime Minister Narenda Modi to Ghani to visit India and the invitation was accepted.

A reliable source, who did not want to be named, told Pajhwok Afghan News that Ghani would travel to India before Pakistan in two weeks time.
