GhaniPresident Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has said the Afghan government is determined to ‘make Afghanistan graveyard of terror’ while calling for regional cooperation to defeat militants.

Speaking to a government think-tank following a meeting with the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President Ghani said Afghanistan has turned into a battlefield where Afghans are fighting on behalf of neighboring and regional countries from India to Russia.

“We are the battlefield. We are fighting on behalf of our friends from India to Russia,” Ghani said a speech to the Indian Council of World Affairs (ICWA).

President Ghani also insisted that peace was the main goal of his government as “the shadow of terror haunts our children, our women, our youth”.

“Terror must be confronted and must be overcome…Our will must not be underestimated and we will not be beaten to submission,” he said.

Ghani also added that terror must be “contained if the disease is to be cured”.

The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had earlier said that India would continue to help build the Afghan military and had delivered three Cheetal helicopters.

Modi also pledged continued support for Afghanistan’s fight against the Taliban and renewed his commitment to developing both land and sea trade routes with the country.

  1. The coward and incompetent ruler of Afghanistan, Haji Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai, is laughing at his a.. when he says that he wants to make Afghanistan the graveyard of terrorism. He is an active contributor of terrorism by chamming up with Taliban, their allies, Saudi Arabia and …, you guessed it right, you know who else.
