New few months will determine the direction Afghanistan goes for hundreds of years to come, President Ashraf Ghani said on Tuesday.

“We must end the 40-year-old crisis we inherited,” the president said addressing security personnel at the Defense Ministry.

Ghani, however, assured that there would not be any hasty decision. “It won’t be under-pressure decisions, it would be principled decisions.”

“Could you leave the country again? At that time, migration was a word of pride, but this time it would be vagrancy. Would a neighbouring country accept a few millions of us?” Ghani asked.

Ghani reiterated that there was no condition for launching negotiations, but peace itself carries conditions.

One of the conditions, he said, was that the security forces will remain.

“Peace is the desire of Afghans, but it should be such a peace which would result in security, peace and national unity,” Ghani said.

He said that progress on peace in the last five years was unprecedented, “but it doesn’t mean we will accept any peace.”

“We will accept that peace in which Afghanistan has dignity and its current flag will fly. This flag will not change,” Ghani said.
