Hamid Karzai holds talks in India

Afghan President Hamid Karzai has arrived in India for talks about security and development, the BBC said. Several strategic accords were due to be signed during meetings with PM Manmohan Singh and other leaders. India is a major player in Afghanistan and has already pledged USD 2 bln in assistance. Karzai’s visit to Delhi follows a series of high-profile attacks in Afghanistan and deteriorating relations with Pakistan, India’s long-term rival. In a recent statement, Karzai said his government would work closely with the US, Europe and India to plan Afghanistan’s future.
