KABUL: The Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani says no power can stop the country to achieve its national goals as he insisted that the times have passed when the country was ruled based on feudalism principles.
President Ghani made the remarks during the opening ceremony of a private steel company in Kabul today.
He said the whole nation, including private sector want a system that is based on the constitution of the country, insisting that no power or law can create hurdles on the way of the nation to achieve the national goals.
The Afghan President further added that the country has been facing violence and conflict for the past 40 years and emphasized that there should be no more violence.
President Ghani was apparently pointing towards the anti-government armed militant groups and the individuals opposing the government.
This comes as the Afghan government together with its international allies has been consistently attempting to encourage the anti-government armed militant groups to participate in peace talks but no major breakthrough has been noted so far with the Taliban group continuously insisting on continued insurgency.
However, the Afghan government and the international community are hopeful that the increased pressures will eventually force the group to refrain from violence and participate in talks to find a political solution.
