Hindustan Times ST (Jaipur) - - Nation -

The 55 coun­tries on the con­ti­nent also have a cru­cial say in In­dia’s quest to be­come a per­ma­nent mem­ber of the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil. In­dia has extended 152 lines of credit worth al­most $8 bil­lion to 44 African coun­tries for de­vel­op­ing agri­cul­ture, in­fra­struc­ture, pub­lic trans­port, clean en­ergy, ir­ri­ga­tion and man­u­fac­tur­ing ca­pac­ity. The out­reach has in­cluded vis­its to sev­eral African states by Pres­i­dent Ram Nath Kovind and Vice Pres­i­dent M Venka­iah Naidu this year that raised the pro­file of bi­lat­eral ties.
