“#Neighbourhoodfirst. EAM @SushmaSwaraj calls on visiting Afghan President Ashraf Ghani in New Delhi. Bilateral & regional issues discussed,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted.
Ghani arrived here on Tuesday morning on a daylong working visit during the course of which he will also meet President Ram Nath Kovind and hold delegation-level talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Tillerson will arrive here on Tuesday evening in what will be his first visit to India in his official capacity.
