Kabul (BNA) President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani in a video message sent on the occasion of International Peace Day has said that Afghanistan is closer to peace than ever despite vicious intentions of the opponents of Afghanistan stability, security and development. He congratulated the International Peace Day to all the people of the world in particular Afghans who really deserved peace than any nations in the world. The country’s President by pointing to efforts made by national unity government in the past five years said for the past five years, national unity government has made lots of efforts to achieve lasting, fair and dignified peace in the country, adding that the result has been a peace-focused consensus among countries in the region.
“In April of the current year, a Peace Consultative Jirga was held to find a roadmap for peace of the people of Afghanistan in the Jirga and for further coordination and acceleration of the efforts, a state ministry for peace was created, which shows full seriousness and strong determination of the government for maintaining of peace in the country,” President Ghani said. “There is no doubt a real peace will be made and will persist, when the people of Afghanistan achieve their rights without any discrimination,” President Ghani said, reiterating that engagement in politics is essential: “The only way to solve decades of war is along a political path and this requires investment in the political process and support for the election and the government.”
The country’s President added that there was only political solution for ending the 40-year conflicts in the country and the best way was a political participation and supporting the elections and republic system. He further said that the government has repeatedly asking for ceasefire as truce was needed to reach peace and end the ongoing war. To achieve lasting peace, he stressed, a ceasefire must happen and bloodshed must stop, “War is no solution.” Ghani believed peace in Afghanistan, once a distant dream, had become a close reality. The best solution to the current crisis was participation in the election, he remarked.
