Afghan President Hamid Karzai is in India where he held talks Monday with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to appeal for increased investment in war-torn Afghanistan.

Indian officials say Mr. Karzai and Mr. Singh will review a strategic partnership agreement their two countries signed last year designed to deepen security and economic ties. India has already invested more than $2 billion dollars on Afghanistan's infrastructure.

Before holding talks in New Delhi with Mr. Singh Monday, President Karzai met with other high-level Indian officials and visited Mahatma Gandhi's memorial.
