Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive of Afghanistan, Abdullah Abdullah, landed in Poland to attend the NATO Heads of State Summit in Warsaw.
Both the leaders will highlight their programs on good governance and fight against the endemic corruption, aimed at drawing the international community’s attention towards Afghanistan.
Afghan Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani, the National Security Advisor Mohammad Hanif Atmar, Defense Minister Gen. Abdullah Habibi and Finance Minister Eklil Hakimi accompany the National Unity Government leaders in this trip.
From the point of view of Afghanistan, the summit is an important address where Kabul will secure funding for the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) as well as troop commitments for NATO’s support mission in the country.
The leaders of the 28 NATO allies and many partner nations will take decisions to strengthen the alliance’s security by bolstering its own deterrence and defense. It also intends to project stability beyond the borders of member states.
The National Security Advisor Mohammad Hanif Atmar said earlier this week that Afghanistan will call on NATO member countries to provide it with a comprehensive five-year financial and military assistance program to support in its fight against terrorism.
He said that Afghanistan’s requests from the international community include financial support of Afghan National Defense and Security Forces and for re-equipping the Afghan Air Force.
