PM Modi inaugurates renovated Stor Palace in Kabul via video conference
New Delhi, Aug 22 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the renovated Stor Palace in Kabul along with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani through video conferencing on Monday. India has played a significant role in the reconstruction and rehabilitation process in Afghanistan in the past few years. Initially built as one-story pavilion during the reign of Amir Abdur Rahman Khan, the Stor Palace, also know as Qasre-stor, was expanded on at least two occasions in the 20th century. In 1919, one of the rooms in the palace was setting for the signing of the Rawalpindi agreement, by which Afghanistan became an independent sovereign state. It housed offices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs until 1965, when most functions were then relocated to a newly constructed building to the east.
