ALL ALONG THE AXIS:

India renews historic Afghan ties (Sanjoy Majumder, 8/28/05, BBC News)

When Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh steps off his aircraft in Afghanistan on Sunday, he will be hoping to strengthen his country's historic ties with that country.

It is the first visit to the country by an Indian prime minister for 29 years.

However, Delhi has been working hard to develop its ties with the new Afghan regime following the overthrow of the Taleban in 2001.
