Afghan foreign minister in India to boost ties

Afghanistan's foreign minister is in New Delhi to meet senior government ministers, months after his country signed a strategic pact with India.
On Tuesday, Foreign Minister Zalmai Rassoul met his Indian counterpart S.M. Krishna and the two men are leading the first session of an India-Afghanistan council set up under the agreement.
The strategic pact signed last October was Afghanistan's first with any country and outlines areas of common concern including trade, economic expansion, education, security and politics.
The Afghan minister is also slated to meet Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and finance and security officials.
