06-01-2011 15:50 BJT

NEW DELHI, June 1 (Xinhua) -- Afghanistan said Wednesday that it would welcome any cooperation from New Delhi in the training of its security forces.

"We will welcome any cooperation (from India) in the fields of training and helping our Afghan national security forces to be able to secure and defend the country," Afghan Defense Minister General Abdul Rahim Wardak told the media in the national capital.

General Wardak, who is on a three-day visit to India, met with Indian Defense Minister AK Antony in the latter's office.

When asked whether the enhanced cooperation between the two countries could result in India supplying military equipment to Afghanistan, General Wardak said, "We will be discussing (it). There is very genuine interest in strengthening our relations in all different sectors including defense."

The visit by the Afghan defense chief came soon after Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh made an official visit to Kabul last month.
