Kabul, Aug. 14 (ANI): Stating that the country's future is in the hands of youth, President Ashraf Ghani on Sunday urged them to work hard to build a new Afghanistan.

Speaking at the inauguration of the Afghan youth parliament in Kabul, Ghani also asked the youth to not let extremists ruin the country, reports the Tolo News.

He was of the opinion that the tally of insurgents is fairly low and therefore they will not be able to beat the people of Afghanistan.

Stating that the government and nation have a strong will to fight insurgents, he said the establishment of the youth parliament, with representation from 34 provinces, shows that youth believes in the Constitution. (ANI)
