New Delhi, Oct 28 (UNI) Describing the third Summit of India Africa Forum as a ‘historic’ occasion, President Pranab Mukherjee has said it is the first time in the history of India-Africa relations that India has the privilege of receiving leaders of the entire African continent together in a Summit meeting.
