India on Tuesday announced additional commitments for Afghanistan, including the construction of a dam that will provide safe drinking water to 20 lakh residents of Kabul city, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar announced at an international conference on Afghanistan.
The approximately $ 250 million (about Rs 3,000 crore) project has been pending for two years following objections from Pakistan as it fears impediment to the regular flow of water. The dam is proposed to be built on Maidan River, a tributary of Kabul River which flows into Pakistan from Afghanistan.
India will also launch the fourth phase of the High Impact Community Development Projects in Afghanistan, which envisages more than 100 projects worth $ 80 million (about Rs 600 crore) that India would undertake in Afghanistan.
