Kabul, Dec 19 (IBNS): The Afghanistan government has welcomed US President Donald Trump's new national security strategy and said it affirmed the enduring U.S. – Afghanistan strategic partnership.

"The NSS and the U.S. South Asia strategy are the cornerstones upon which our shared efforts to defeat terrorism and bring stability to Afghanistan are built.  Our partnership, which reflects a renewed U.S. commitment, will set the conditions to end the war and finally bringing peace to Afghanistan," read a statement issued by Afghanistan  President Ashraf Ghani's Office.

"We welcome that the strategy aims to strengthen peace and stability in the region especially through diplomatic means," read the statement.

"The National Unity Government is committed to the principle of mutual respect and cooperation among states in the region. We have always worked and shall continue to do so for a peaceful region with increased connectivity for the shared economic development of our people in this region. To this end, we will continue to work with our neighbors close and far in the region," it said.

US President Donald Trump has shared new national security strategy on Monday.

The newly unveiled strategy asked Pakistan to take decisive action against terrorist groups operating on their territory.
