president-ghani-and-divid-cameronPresident Mohammad Ashraf Ghani on Saturday congratulated Prime Minister David Cameron for his victory in UK’s election and hoped that relation between the two countries would further flourish under his leadership.

 Cameron was celebrating a surprise victory in the British election Friday as his Conservative Party won an outright majority over a faltering opposition.

The result lifted a fog of uncertainty, removing the prospect of an inconclusive hung parliament.

His party secured 331 seats in the parliament. “I hope under the leadership of David Cameron, relations between Afghanistan and UK will reach new heights,” a statement from the Presidential Palace quoted the president as saying.
