President Ghani reacts to Taliban's comment on Afghan constitution

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani on Saturday rejected Taliban's comment on Afghan constitution.

Meeting with Afghan politicians in Moscow this week, Taliban delegation chief, Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai, said that the Afghan constitution was imported from the West, Afghan media reported.

“Those who are not aware of this country threaten that the Afghan constitution is imported. You should prove to them that the Afghan constitution is national and the Afghan people, the young generation of Afghanistan, religious scholars, women are provident,” Ghani said.

He suggested that today’s Afghanistan is different from how it was 20 years ago and that the constitution is based on Islamic values.

The president was speaking at a ceremony to introduce newly-appointed acting minister of industry and commerce and Kabul mayor.

Ghani said that Afghanistan’s exports could reach 4-8 billion dollars by 2024.
