The President of Afghanistan, Ashraf Ghani has urged the new elected United States (US) President Joe Biden to help fight terrorism and support Afghanistan’s shaky peace process by ensuring continued aid to Kabul.

According to media reports, the Afghan President, in a statement on Sunday, congratulated Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their election victory.

Ashraf Ghani further said in the statement, “Afghanistan looks forward to continuing and deepening our multilayered strategic partnership with the US — our foundational partner — including in counterterrorism and bringing peace to Afghanistan.”

According to AFP, the ties between Ghani and Trump’s administration turned sour in recent months over Kabul’s exclusion from crucial behind-the-door talks between Washington and the Taliban, which led to the signing of a historic peace deal in February this year.
