National Security Advisor Hamdullah Mohib on Monday met with UN Secretary General António Guterres in New York and discussed Afghan elections, the security situation, and prospects for peace, Mohib's office said.
The UN SG expressed his strong commitment to Afghanistan for enduring peace and stability.
Mohib on Monday addressed the 74th session of the United Nations Assembly where he said that almost three million Afghans voted in the country’s presidential elections on September 28 despite the “threat of terrorism.”
“We all voted not just for a president, but we also voted for democracy. We voted for our Constitution. We voted for freedom and sovereignty. We voted for prosperity and connectivity. We voted for peace. We voted for the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan,” Mohib said.
Also in New York, Mohib met with the foreign minister of Turkmenistan, Raşit Meredow, and discussed bilateral issues, regional stability, development, and cooperation in the region.
Mohib highlighted Turkmenistan’s role in Afghanistan’s regional projects, Mohib’s office said.
