Ghani warns insurgent groups to lay down their arms

Kabul, Mar.7 (ANI): President Ashraf Ghani on Monday warned the insurgent groups operating in the country to face the full wrath of the security forces if they did not lay down their arms.

“If someone wants peace we will be ready to make peace with them, but for those who want war, we will eliminate them,” Tolo news quoted Ghani as saying at the graduation ceremony for cadets at the Marshal Fahim National Defense University (MFNDU).

Ghani asserted that the war on Afghanistan was imposed one and added that the insurgents were attacking the mosques and targeting schools.

Ghani warned Al-Qaeda, Daesh and other terrorist groups that they would be destroyed in the country and also called on the Taliban to separate themselves from the insurgents.

Praising the newly-graduated troops, he asserted that their topmost commitment should be to defend the country.

He assured that the government was striving for a professional military, which should be neutral and without political links.

Lauding the security forces for their efforts, Ghani said 2015 was a year of survival for Afghanistan and added that the Generals showed that they could defend the country.

He urged the guests attending the event that all of them had similar responsibility towards defending the people and their land.

Ghani reiterated the cadets to be ready for a worse situation, but also expressed hope for a better future.

President Ghani also thanked the international community for their efforts to provide training, equipment and facilities to the security forces.

More than 549 officers, including 13 women, graduated from the academy. They will soon be joining their fellow troops in combat missions. (ANI)
