Afghan President Ashraf Ghani met top US general in Afghanistan and commander of CENTCOM General Frank McKenzie in Presidential Palace (ARG) Sunday evening.

A delegation led by the US Marine commander of Central Command in their meeting with the Afghan president outlined further details of the recent telephonic call between the heads of two states.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and US President Joe Biden in their telephonic call on Friday reiterated the continuation of the partnership between the two countries.

General McKenzie and President Ghani in their Sunday meeting discussed the security situation of Afghanistan and priorities for gaining control over the situation.
