KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Acting foreign minister Salahuddin Rabbani has arrived in New Dheli, the capital of India, for talks with his Indian counterpart and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a media report said on Sunday .

Rabbani is expected to renew Afghanistaninfo-icon's demand for greater Indian involvement in the war-ravaged nation, including the 'wish list' of defence equipment it has sought from India.

Both India and Afghanistan are also expected to consider how they can jointly combat terrorism unleashed by Pakistaninfo-icon-based terror groups in both India and Afghanistan.

At the India-Afghanistan Strategic Partnership Council meeting, the two sides are likely to review the entire gamut of relations, including the Indian humanitarian assistance to the embattled nation.

This will be the first high-level visit to India by an Afghanistan official after US President Donald Trump unveiled his Afghan strategy last month and appealed to India to assume a greater role in the country.

President Trump appealed to India to play a larger role in providing economic and development assistance to Afghanistan. Trump described India as "a key security and economic partner of the United States," and said America would further "develop its strategic partnership with India- the worldinfo-icon's largest democracy."
