KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Highlighting the importance of the United Nations as a multilateral platform on its 75th anniversary, President Ashraf Ghani urged the worldinfo-icon’s body to help Afghanistaninfo-icon become a sovereign, united and democratic country.

In a statement on the occasion of the UN 75th anniversary, the president asked the international community to support Afghanistan in peace with itself, the region, capable of preserving and expanding the gains of the last 19 years.

"Though we are facing multiple drivers of turmoil all at once in Afghanistan, there is a clear and urgent priority for us: a ceasefire and an urgent end to the violence more than anything else, give us a chance to progress," said the president.

He said Afghanistan was a country positioned right at the heart of Asia, right at the heart of untapped potential that could bring prosperity and peace to the region. “But this means that we are also right in the middle of the turmoil that is affecting us all today."

He underscored the UN’s important role of multilateralism and particularly in addressing challenges that continued to impact Afghanistan and the world.

“The United Nations that we need is an organization with the authorities, capabilities, capitals, and commitments to fulfill the purposes and principles of this Charter."
