Indian-Afghan diplomats to enjoy free visa

New Delhi: An agreement was signed between India and Afghanistan on Monday, allowing their diplomats visa-free travel.

The agreement was signed as Afghan Chief Executive Officer and Head of the Council of Ministers Abdullah Abdullah called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi here.

“Promoting stronger diplomatic ties. During CE @DrAAbdullah’s visit, India & Afghanistan sign agreement on visa-free travel for diplomats,” external affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup tweeted.

“Sustained engagement with Afghanistan. Chief Executive @DrAAbdullah meets PM @narendramodi in Delhi,” he stated in an earlier tweet.

Abdullah Abdullah, who arrived here on Sunday on a five-day visit to India, is also scheduled to meet External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.

He will leave for Jaipur on Tuesday where he will attend a conference on counter-terrorism.
