Afghanistan not alone in anti-terror fight: German envoy
The NSC in a statement said National Security Advisor Mohammad Hanif Atmar met German Ambassador Martin Jäger and discussed with him relations between the two countries, RECCA-VI and SOM conferences and the Afghan government’s new priorities in the anti-terrorism war.
The successful conduct of the RECCA and SOM in Kabul showed the efficiency of Afghanistan’s foreign policy, the statement quoted Jäger as saying.
At the 100th anniversary of friendship between Afghanistan and Germany, Jäger hadsaid his country considered Afghanistan as a close ally and supported Kabul’s new priorities in its anti-terrorism policy.
“During his recent trip to Pakistan, Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs Frank-Walter Steinmeier conveyed a clear message that they support the priorities of the Afghan government in the anti-terrorism struggle and Afghanistan is not alone in the fight, “the ambassador said.
Atmar said the two nations could play an important role in maintaining the friendship between the two countries. He thanked the people and government of Germany for supporting the Afghan government.
“The new policy of the Afghan government against terrorism is based on nation and region wise security and removing challenges to the stability of the world,” he said.
If neighboring countries did not cooperate honestly with Afghanistan and its allies, the security of the region would be affected, Atmar said in the statement.
