Afghanistan to be made economic hub: Qayyum from Pajhwok Afghan News.

KABUL (Pajhwok): Presidential contender Abdul Qayyum Karzai has pledged to make Afghanistan an economic hub of the region, build close trade ties with neighbouring countries if he is elected in the April vote. 

In an exclusive interview with Pajhwok Afghan News, he discussed a wide range of issues such as economic development, Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA) with the United States and the slow-moving peace process.

War alone could not ensure peace and stability, he said, adding his government would be dominated by competent individuals from different ethnic groups.

“If I am elected as president, I will leave no stone unturned to take forward the development projects launched by my brother and the incumbent president,” he vowed.
