Relations with US Central to Afghan Stability: Ghani

PESHAWAR - President Ashraf Ghani has renewed his administration’s commitment to reforms, especially eliminating the scourge of corruption.
In a telephonic conversation with US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis on Tuesday, Ghani underlined the need for a sustained Kabul-Washington relationship for the security of Afghanistan and the region.
Pentagon spokesman Jeff Davis said in a statement Mattis commended the Afghan president’s leadership and emphasised the importance of his government in stability of Afghanistan.
“In light of the recent terrorist attacks, including today's attack against the Supreme Court, Mattis offered his condolences for the sacrifices of the Afghan people and commended Ghani's unwavering commitment in the face of the enemy,” Davis said.
Both leaders expressed their desire to maintain a strong relationship, hoping to engage again in the near future, the Pentagon spokesman added. (Pajhwok)
