Ghani stresses need for joint war on terrorism

KABUL (Pajhwok): President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has once again underlined the need for a joint campaign against terrorism, his office said on Thursday.

During a meeting with British Home Secretary Theresa May in London on Wednesday evening, the president said the scourge could be eradicated through joint efforts.

Increased bilateral relations, the state of human rights in Afghanistan, social justice, regional cooperation and efforts to combat drugs came up for discussion at the meeting.

A statement from the Presidential Palace said Ghani applauded British assistance to Afghanistan, particularly in the area of training Afghan police. He stressed the need for continued British support.

“Our long-term vision for strengthening Afghan police is that they should effectively shoulder law-enforcement responsibility,” he added.

The British secretary promised she would talk to Afghan diplomats in London and UNHCR officials on resolving the problems of refugees, particularly children.
