Sri Lanka and Afghanistan has agreed on measures to strengthen economic ties following a visit by foreign minister Zalmai Rassoul to Colombo, which was the first such bi-lateral visit.

A joint communiqué issued following the visit said Afghanistan will send a delegation representing its commerce ministry and Chamber of Commerce of Afghanistan, to explore trade opportunities.

Afghanistan requested the services of Sri Lankan expertise in processing gem-stones, while Sri Lanka had proposed a bilateral agreement for providing professional and skilled labour to Afghanistan, for its re-building, including restoring artifacts.
