Regional, global cooperation key to Afghan stability: Ghani
The president said this while accepting credentials from the new British ambassador to Afghanistan, Dominic Jermey, during a ceremony at the Presidential Palace.
A statement from the palace said the president and the new British envoy conferred on relations between the two countries in various sectors.
The president thanked the UK for its assistance with Afghanistan and British troops’ participation in the NATO mission.
Ghani said peace and stability in Afghanistan was the fundamental demand of its people and government and in this regard, regional and international cooperation was important to logically end extremism and terrorism that threatened the entire region and the world.
The new British ambassador said he was happy over his new assignment in Afghanistan and would make every effort that further strengthened cooperation and relations between the two countries.
The British Embassy in Kabul in a statement said Dominic had previously worked as the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) International Counter-Extremism Coordinator, UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) Chief Executive and Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates.
In earlier roles, Dominic was based in Afghanistan with a focus on UK anti-terrorist objectives.
At his meeting with President Ghani, the envoy said his country would continue working closely with the unity government in Kabul for the shared goals of stability, security and peace.
