Afghan President Ashraf Ghani today inaugurated the first Afghanistan-India air corridor at the Kabul International Airport.

The corridor is a direct route that will bypass Pakistan and is meant to improve commerce in Afghanistan.

Mr. Ghani said on the occasion that the aim of the route is to create more opportunities and make Afghanistan an exporter country. Afghan President’s adviser Sediqullah Mujadedi said Afghan agricultural products will for the first time head to India on cargo planes.

Afghanistan is a mountainous landlocked country and all imports and exports depend on neighbouring countries.

Meanwhile, first air freight corridor flight arrived in New Delhi.External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju and others were present at the arrival of the flight.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has thanked Afghan President for the initiative. In a tweet, he said, the direct connectivity between India and Afghanistan will usher prosperity.
