President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani on Sunday met with Alice Wells, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs in Kabul.

The office of the President, ARG Palace, in a statement said the two sides held talks on U.S.-Afghan Civilian Review, peace efforts, results of Consultative Peace Jirga, and Presidential Elections.

The U.S. Embassy in Kabul had earlier said the U.S.-Afghan Civilian Review will strengthen Afghan institutions and promote Afghan self-reliance, and is an element of the investment the U.S. makes in the social and economic development of Afghanistan.

According to a statement released by U.S. Embassy in Kabul, Wells will also meet with stakeholders of the September 28 Afghan Presidential Elections to learn about ongoing preparations and underscore U.S. commitment to a transparent and efficient presidential elections process. 

“She will meet with men and women from civil society to hear their views on peace and reaffirm U.S. support for a peaceful, stable Afghanistan.  She will also celebrate Ramadan at an Iftar with Afghan civil society leaders,” the statement added.
