Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated a multi-million-dollar dam in western Afghanistan that will bring power and irrigation to vast tracts of the war-torn country.

The Afghan-India Friendship Dam in Herat province, which borders Iran, was built with Indian aid at a cost of 300 million Dollars and was under construction for about a decade.

Modi arrived in Afghanistan for the formal inauguration of the project, which will provide 42 megawatts of power and irrigate 75,000 hectares of agricultural land.
