Ghani Appeals For Regional Cooperation In Fight Against Terrorism


Ghani-and-Imam-Ali-RahmanufPresident Ashraf Ghani on Tuesday held meetings with Tajikistan officials and signed several agreements and memorandums of understanding (MoU) on economic and regional cooperation.

Ghani, on a two-day trip to Tajikistan, described terrorism as the common threat for regional players and stressed the need for regional cooperation in the fight against this phenomenon.
"Terrorism neither recognizes nation, religion nor border. It is a common threat and we in Afghanistan are in the frontline of the fight against terrorism," he said.
According to a press statement issued by the Presidential Palace, Ghani put his weight behind Central Asia-South Asia electricity project CASA-1000. "CASA-1000 is not only a project, but a symbol of our resolve and it will reunify the Asia that has fallen apart," the president added.
Tajikistan's President Emomali Rahmon said that they will strive hard to make the border between the country as a border of stability, friendship and cooperation.
Rahmon also stressed the need to fight against terrorism, extremism and drug trafficking.
Rahmon termed CASA-1000 as vital for regional development.
Work of CASA-1000 power transmission project will be inaugurated within the next couple of days.
