Cementing their ties, India and Afghanistan on Sunday signed three accords covering education, healthcare and agricultural research.

An agreement in the field of healthcare and medicinal sciences and two memoranda of understanding on small development projects and cooperation in agricultural research and education were signed in the presence of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Afghan President Hamid Karzai after their talks in Kabul.

According to the agreement in the field of healthcare and medicinal sciences, India would help the war-ravaged country in programmes relating to family welfare, public health and hospitals.

The MoU on small development projects covered areas like education, healthcare and community development.

The Indian embassy and consulates in consultation with the Afghan government will identify the projects to be covered under the MoU.

Another MoU on agricultural research and education envisages cooperation in the field of horticulture, fisheries and animal sciences. It will also involve exchange of scientists.
