WASHINGTON (Pajhwok): US Vice President Mike Pence has congratulated President Ashraf Ghani over the phone on the successful Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon elections, saying a large number of people came out to vote disregarding the Talibaninfo-icon threat.

“He (Pence) congratulated the Afghan people on the steady advance of democracy following the parliamentary elections this past weekend,” the White House said in a read-out of the call.
