Ghani meets Trump in NY, says ‘victory within sight’

Ghani meets Trump in NY, says ‘victory within sight’

Sep 21, 2017 - 19:35

NEW YORK (Pajhwok): President Ashraf Ghani met his US counterpart Donald Trump Thursday on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly session here, during which he said that as a result of new Afghan policy a cloud of uncertainty has been lifted and victory is within sight.

“A cloud of uncertainty has been lifted, but equally important is your commitment to a political solution at the end of this process," Ghani said in his brief remarks at the top of the meeting with Trump here.

"We are committed to make sure it's the Afghan people, Afghan soldiers, Afghan officers who will take the burden of responsibility," he said. “Victory-- political, and military-wise-- is within our sight," Ghani said.

"We do not ask for a blank check. We are determined to do what is ours-- fight corruption, ensure that there is no waste of resources, full accountability for the results," said the Afghan President, who was welcomed by Trump for the meeting.

 It’s a pleasure to have President Ghani of Afghanistaninfo-icon with us. We are working very well together. We are working very hard. Our military is as you know over there right now and doing really an incredible job more of leadership than fighting,” Trump said.

“We are leading a lot of wonderful Afghan troops who are fighting very hard. We were just discussing that. And great progress is being made. So it’s an honor to have you and all of your representatives with us," said the US President.
