Afghanistan wants no war: Ghani
Ghani’s remarks came after he offered special Eid prayers along with Jihadi leaders, cabinet and parliament members, ambassadors of some Islamic countries in Kabul and high-ranking security officials at the Presidential Palace.
Ghani congratulated Eid to all Afghans and said: “I express gratitude to all our security forces that are in the frontline at the moment so that we could celebrate Eid in a peaceful atmosphere.”
He urged the masses to stand by the security forces and support them since their sacrifices were the reason that Afghanistan could come out of survival test successfully.
“Peace is every Afghan’s desire. An enduring peace with dignity that everyone’s rights are ensured in it,” he said, adding that time for intra-Afghan dialogue was ripe more than ever.
The president said price of one month war in Afghanistan was enough for the development of one province. “Afghans have paid the price for war. Afghanistan does not want war.”
Ghani concluded government’s focus in the coming fall would be on economic projects.
