KABUL – Addressing a press conference after another day at the NATO summit in Warsaw, Poland, Afghan president Ashraf Ghani called on Pakistan yesterday to expel militants fighting against Afghanistan from its soil.

Ghani said that Afghan citizens wanted sustainable peace in the country and demanded neighboring countries to stop providing sanctuaries to terrorists involved in attacks on Afghan soil.

The Afghan president also welcomed as an “achievement” the renewed funding commitment from NATO for his country’s fledgling security forces amid the increasing Taliban insurgency.
