President Ghani calls new US strategy a game-changer

President Ghani calls new US strategy a game-changer

Oct 25, 2017 - 10:30

KABUL (Pajhwok): President Ashraf Ghani has characterised President Donald Trump’s new strategy for South Asia as a “game-changer” aimed at ensuring a regional approach to fighting terrorism.

Speaking at the Vivekananda International Foundation (VIF), a New Delhi-based think-tank, Ghani said on Tuesday making Pakistan act against state sponsorship of terror sanctuaries was part of the US policy.

“We want peace with Pakistan and desire to create a win-win situation. But if Pakistan stops our access to India, we can also stop Pakistan’s access to Central Asia,” Ghani told the audience.

He surged Pakistan to respond practically to his government’s overture.  “Afghanistan is not at the risk of collapse. It is emerging as a transit and connectivity hub for Central Asia and Eurasia.”

Indian media outlets quoted him as saying Afghanistan could be linked with China through Central Asia.
