BRUSSELS (Pajhwok):  The European Union on Thursday said regional countries had shown interest in a peaceful and stable Afghanistaninfo-icon, something the Afghan leadership was committed to.

EU high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, Federica Mogherini, told reporters in Brussels that peace in Afghanistan was in the vital interest of all countries in the region.

Speaking the sidelines of a NATOinfo-icon defense ministers’ meeting here, she said regional countries had already showed interest in supporting the Afghan reconciliation and the Kabulinfo-icon Process Conference was a big example of that.

The EU would continue to support and cooperate with the Afghanistan government and people, she said. “I see a committed leadership in Afghanistan. I see the country that turns the page, that needs international and  regional support, I see regional partners are already engaged to support this process,” she said.

She said everyone realized that peace, security and development in Afghanistan were in the interest of all countries in the region.

About the much-talked about differences in the unity government, the EU representative said she was not in negative mode on the political perspective, but a lot of work was needed to be done.
