President Ashraf Ghani, who spoke via video call at the Geneva conference on Afghanistan, said he had repeatedly called for a ceasefire with the Taliban in recent years, referring to peace talks with the Taliban in Doha.
President pointed to the release of Taliban prisoners after “consulting with the Loya Jirga”.
Ghani told the participants of the Geneva conference that his country wants a peace that should be in accordance with the Constitution of Afghanistan and the values of world human rights.
“Our strategy is based on the three principles; making peace, state-building and creating a market,” Ghani said.
He told representatives of countries and organizations that he expects to set a framework for the assistance to his country for the next four years.
The Afghanistan Donor Conference was attended by representatives of 70 countries and 20 international organizations in Geneva.
