Munich (Germany) Feb 16 (ANI): Afghanistan National Security Advisor (NSA) Hamdullah Mohib on Friday (local time) condemned Pulwama terror attack in India's Jammu and Kashmir state, which left 40 CRPF soldiers dead, saying that “terrorism is an enemy that is hunting our entire region.”
"I condemn the attack in Kashmir, which left at least 40 dead. Terrorism is an enemy that is hunting our entire region," TOLO News quoted Hamdullah Mohib, as saying.
Mohib made these remarks during the Town Hall meeting on the sidelines of Munich Security Conference.
 Condemning the Pulwama terror attack, Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani had said on Friday: “Terrorism is cancer in the region, and it requires collective efforts to root it out.”
Condemning Taliban, Mohib said that the Taliban have lost the purpose of their fight, adding that Afghan forces are sacrificing their lives to defend the civilians.
“My soldiers do not fight for $300 salary. They are fighting for a purpose. They fight to defend our values with the support of our partners and millions of Afghans around the country. Taliban have lost the purpose and what they’re fighting for,” the NSA said.
Mohib exuded confidence that peace would return to Afghanistan but "it requires an inclusive process."
“Peace is coming to Afghanistan. We will bring peace. It is not going to be a simple process of meetings and facilitation. It requires all of us to involve substantively to ensure everybody’s interests are taken care of and is a peace that’s acceptable to Afghan people,” he said. (ANI)
