Oct 18, 2017 - 17:46

ZARANJ (Pajhwok): “India is ready to cooperate with Afghanistan in every sphere of life,” the country’s consul general based in southern Kandahar province told a health clinic’s inauguration ceremony in southwestern Nimroz province on Wednesday.

Madan Singh Bhandari inaugurated the five-bed facility in Sardasht village of Zaranj, the provincial capital, along with Governor Eng. Mohammad Sami.

Sami said: “Our friendly country India has always proved in action its support to Afghanistan’s development and has contributed generously to the progress of our country.” He said the clinic would resolve heath related problems of the people of Sardasht village.

Bhandari congratulated the people of Sardasht people for the clinic and said more development projects would be inaugurated in Nimroz in near future. “Our country is committed to cooperating with Afghanistan in every area,” he said.

About the export of fruits from Afghanistan to India via the Afghan-Indo air corridor, the diplomat hoped Nimroz as “the warehouse of Asia” would also start exporting fruits from its airport to India.

Bhandari said his country was planning to execute 160 development projects worth $80 million in 31 provinces of Afghanistan in near future.

Nimroz public health director Dr. Khesraw Yousfzai said the clinic’s construction cost nine million afghanis donated by India. The clinic would provide health services to 15,000 families in the area, he added.
