(BNA), Thursday 07 June,

President Hamid Karzai delivered a speech on Afghanistan’s foreign policy at the China Foreign Affairs University (CFAU) yesterday where he stressed that the strategic partnership agreements of Afghanistan with the United States and other countries are not directed to its neighbors or any other country.

Addressing professors and students at the CFAU, President Karzai said that after establishment of the Interim Administration, Afghanistan has always tried to ensure relations on the basis of mutual respect with the world including its neighbors and other countries in the region and to devise its foreign policy in a way that Afghanistan’s good and friendly relations with one country does not result in straining its relations with any other country.

The President said, Afghanistan has its own needs and in view of those, it forged strategic partnerships with the United States and other countries and these cooperative deals strengthen Afghanistan’s relations with the world.

President Karzai reassured that the partnership agreements would never undermine its neighbors and others in the region, notably China which is a best friend for Afghanistan.

The President said, the People’s Republic of China has good relations with both Afghanistan and Pakistan and can encourage Pakistan to honestly fight against terrorism and extremism.

President Karzai answered a range of questions by Chinese and Afghan students at the CFAU and concluded his speech by underscoring on the need to further enhance bilateral cooperation between the two countries while his remarks were warmly welcomed by the audience.
