Iraq Protests:  UN and US  Call for  Reforms  to Help  End Unrest

NEW DELHI - The second joint China-India Capacity Building Program for Diplomats from Afghanistan began here on Monday with the participation of 10 young Afghan diplomats.
The intensive two-week course is being organised by India's Ministry of External Affairs at New Delhi-based Foreign Service Institute (FSI).
This will include training modules on various topics covering India's foreign policy, key international issues, multilateral diplomacy and diplomatic skills.
The participants will get an exposure to modern India's economic and technological developments, and also undertake study tours to experience the rich cultural heritage of India.
The first such program was held at FSI on Oct. 15-26, 2018, as part of an understanding reached between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at their first informal summit held in central Chinese city of Wuhan in April last year.
Ten Afghan diplomats had participated in the last year's training program.
Addressing the Afghan diplomats during the inaugural session, Chinese Ambassador to India Sun Weidong said the three sides - China, India and Afghanistan - could explore possibility of expanding cooperation into the field of joint capacity-building program, consistently enriching the China-India-Afghan cooperation and create a new paradigm for the trilateral cooperation.
"As responsible countries of the region, China and India can also explore ways to apply their successful experience of cooperation with Afghanistan to other countries in the region. We can work hand in hand with partners to consolidate the prospects of regional stability and prosperity, and open a new chapter for regional cooperation between China and India," said the Chinese envoy.
