Ghani told diplomats that Afghanistan is on the front line of a global war against violence and called for a new security alliance to tackle common terrorist threats.
“Taliban-sponsored terrorism is creating a platform that is bringing terrorists from all over the region to Afghanistan,” Ghani said. “What we need is an agreement on regional security.”
Highlighting the volatile situation in the country, a rocket struck an Indian diplomatic compound in Kabul as the conference kicked off. Later on Tuesday, a suspected bomb outside a mosque in the western city of Herat killed seven people, police said.
