President Ghani made the comments on Thursday afternoon during a peach to a gathering at the Korber Foundation.

High ranking German officials and parliamentarians attended the event in Berlin, a statement from the Presidential Palace said.

The president said the Afghans needed peace to get a sigh of relief from the decades-long conflict, but they would not accept peace “with dishonour.”

 “Last year, we struggled to prevent a situation in which Talibaninfo-icon and their backers wanted to create political geography in Afghanistan and force us into accept peace with dishonor. We did not let the enemy reach the goal,” he said.

“We sacrificed a lot for that, but we are proud of the sacrifices our security personnel gave for the country,” he said.

Regarding trans-Afghanistan projects linking central and south Asia, President Ghani said the projects had reached the phase of implementation.

“Many Afghans want to remain in their country and the Afghan government in cooperation with its international allies is trying to provide then jobs in order to encourage the people not to think about leaving the country,” he said.
