NEW DELHI (Pajhwok): Afghanistaninfo-icon's Ambassador Shaida Mohammad Abdali, at a meeting with Indian Agricultureinfo-icon Minister Radha Mohan Singh, was assured of all cooperation in the field of agriculture and allied sectors.

Singh informed the diplomat that India had taken a keen interest in conducting training programmes to share its expertise in agricultural techniques and infrastructure for the benefit of Afghanistan.

India has imported agricultural products valued at $207.5 million whereas its exports were of the order of $60.94 million during the year 2013-14. Both countries agreed to explore possibilities of further strengthening bilateral cooperation, research work, infrastructure and technology.

Abdali suggested both countries might jointly organise seminars and workshops for farmers so as to assess the scope for sharing knowledge and experience in technologies, cooperatives and packaging industries.

Citing a public opinion poll, the ambassador said the people of Afghanistan rated India as No. 1 in matter of mutual trust. He hoped the National Agricultural University in Afghanistan would get necessary support in research work from India.

He also said Afghanistan looked forward to sharing India’s experience in respect of climate change, packaging of fruits like apple, pomegranates and grapes, the government said in a statement.
