President Ghani, NATO Secretary General speak on phone

President Ashraf Ghani spoke via phone with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg today evening and discussed commitments on sustainable assistance to Afghanistan Defense and Security forces, supporting the Afghan peace process and addressing terrorist safe havens in the region.

The NATO Secretary General expressed disappointments that his visit to Kabul postponed since he had to deal with recent circumstances and incidents in the region and pledged to pay a visit to Kabul at a suitable occasion.

Both sides underscored that ensuring peace and stability in Afghanistan and the region will be inconceivable unless the challenge of terrorists’ safe havens in the region is addressed.

The two sides also agreed to discuss in details the strategic and multifaceted issues between Afghanistan and NATO during the upcoming visit of Secretary General Stoltenberg to Kabul.
