President H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan held a round of talks yesterday evening in presence of General H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister.

Sheikh Khalifa reiterated UAE's support to the efforts being made by the government of Afghanistan to restore peace and stability in the country.

He said that development should go side by side with the security efforts in Afghanistan, adding that the UAE will continue to provide all kinds of support to ease the suffering of the Afghani people.

Sheikh Khalifa referred to the role of President Karzai, saying that his visit to the UAE would open new horizons for cooperation between the two friendly countries.

He noted that the aid given by the international community to Afghanistan will enable all classes of Afghani people to join the political process and to reject violence.

"We sincerely hope that the efforts made by the government of Afghanistan will lead to peace and security in that country, a matter which will have a positive reflection on the region as a whole," Sheikh Khalifa said.

For his side, President Karzai expressed Afghani people's appreciation to Sheikh Khalifa for the unlimited support and contribution in the Afghanistan rebuilding efforts.

He referred to the projects implemented by the UAE in Afghanistan, including the role of the UAE Red Crescent Authority in improving living standards of thousands of families affected by successive wars there.

President Karzai expressed his government's keenness to eliminate all kinds of terrorism in Afghanistan and in the region and praised the international stances in support of these efforts.

"My visit to the UAE is an opportunity to discuss relations between the two countries and to explore ways to enhance them for the benefit of the two friendly peoples," he said.

Sheikh Khalifa hosted an Iftar banquet in honour of President Karzai and his accompanying delegation. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
