KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): National Security Advisor (NSA) Hamdullah Mohib on Sunday praised the international community for its ongoing commitments to Afghan National Security and Defence Forces.

In a tweet, Mohib offered condolences on the demise of Senator John McCain, whose integrity, service and dedication was recognised worldwide.

He also hailed the outgoing commander of Resolute Support (RS) mission: “During your time as commander you helped the ANDSF mature into a professional force now leading the fight against the insurgents. I want to assure you that we will continue to build upon your great work.”

The ex-ambassador welcomed Gen. Miller back to Afghanistaninfo-icon and congratulated him on his promotion to a 4-star general.

“Gen Miller was among the first American soldiers to be deployed to Afghanistan since 2001 and has extensive experience in counter-terrorism operations,” the NSA added

Addressing Miller, he said: “You take the command of RS when there is a generational change happening in Afghanistan, a generation of young leaders born and raised in war, who see it as an ill that has destroyed our societyinfo-icon and economy.

“This generation is not here to build empire or militias but to build institutions to serve the people,” the advisor remarked.

“My colleague deputy minister of finance Naheed Sarabi said it best that security and stability are not just the absence of bullets, but instead the realisation of a set of rights values and principles.

 “We stand with shoulder to shoulder to fight the enemies of freedom and justice. Together we will eliminate the menace of terrorism from Afghanistan and region.”
