U.S. Cut in Aids to Afghanistan Won't Affect Key Sectors: Ghani

March 24 (The Killid Group) − President Ashraf Ghani said in a declaration, the U.S. cut in aids to Afghanistan will not directly affect key sectors in the country. Earlier on Monday, the U.S. government announced it will slash $1 billion in assistance to Afghanistan this year over the political deadlock in the country. Earlier on Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with President Ghani and Dr. Abdullah Abdullah in Kabul, but the meeting ended fruitless. After the U.S. Secretary of States failed to convince Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and his political rival Dr. Abdullah to end the current political deadlock, he announced $1 billion cut in aids to Afghanistan, adding that another $1 billion would be pulled in 2021. President Ghani, however, said that the "reduction in U.S. assistance will not have a direct impact on our key sectors and we will try to fill the gap by searching for alternative ways.” President Ghani calls the reduction in aids to Afghanistan “conditional”, adding that efforts will be made to convince them through negotiations. The decision to cut aids to Afghanistan was made after the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo failed to convince the political rivals to break the deadlock.
