World’s stability depends on situation in war-torn states
KABUL (Pajhwok): The Afghan government on Thursday stressed on g7+ member countries and the international community to continue supporting conflict-torn states in order to help ensure stability across the world.
The Afghan government is hosting a two-day fourth g7+ ministerial meeting in Kabul on dealing with poverty and other challenges, officials say.
The Afghan government says stability in the world depends on stability in war-affected and undeveloped countries.
Mustafa Mastoor, advisor to Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and deputy finance minister, told the g7+ meeting on second day that Afghanistan had significantly developed compared to its situation in 2002.
“Developments made in Afghanistan have resulted from support of the international community, we are trying to strengthen our cooperation with the international community,” he said.
Despite developments, Afghanistan still faced several challenges, he said, adding that the peace process was one of the ways Afghanistan could overcome its problems.
Without peace, the Afghan government could not achieve full economic prosperity, according to Mastoor, who said the Afghan government was trying to take the country out of turmoil with support from the international community and its strategic plans.
He said the g7+ countries could play a positive way by cooperating with Afghanistan in its economic development and political issues. He asked the international community to continue its support for conflict-hit countries and help them in their development.
On the second day of the meeting, participants also discussed opportunities, economic challenges, joblessness and migration and available solutions to the problems.
The g7+ is an intergovernmental organisation, bringing together countries with a recent experience of conflict. The group aims to draw attention to the special challenges faced by fragile states.
It provides a platform for conflict-affected countries to discuss their shared development challenges, and advocates for better international policies to address the needs of conflict-affected countries.
