Washington, April 20
Asserting that China and India are to be a factor in the regional prosperity, Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani has said it is “a moment of choice” for neighbouring Pakistan as all its calculations have been “wrong” so far.
Ghani, in an interview to CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, said the leaders of Pakistan acknowledged that they did not want the Taliban government in Afghanistan, that they would like to see a peaceful, stable, democratic government in the war-torn country. “We are key to their prosperity.
The rate of growth in Afghanistan could enhance by 2 per cent , we have to work together. So, there are two options… Connect to Central Asia through us, share in the joint prosperity through the partnership for peace, gain international credibility and support that they’re all in need of, or opt for chaos,” he said. — PTI
