Abdullah Abdullah, Chairman, Afghan High Council For National Reconciliation:
We are grateful. The president of the United States told us, the president — to the president of Afghanistan and our delegation, while the troops are withdrawing, and that’s a decision which has been made, the commitment of the United States for enduring partnership with Afghanistan, in terms of supporting the Afghan people, supporting Afghanistan with $3.3 billion of assistances for the security forces, humanitarian assistances, diplomatic support, and all of that will continue.
And, meanwhile, on our part, of course, we honor the sacrifices which the United States have made, alongside our people, with us, and remember those fallen. And we express our gratitude for those who have served in Afghanistan.
But, meanwhile, I think it’s good news. We knew it, but we heard it from the administration today. We heard it from the Congress today and yesterday. So that is — that will be good news for the people of Afghanistan.
