Afghanistan’s leading presidential candidate Ashraf Ghani vows to sign security agreement

April 2nd, 2014
02:39 PM ET

By Mick Krever, CNN

You can watch Amanpour's full interview with Ghani here.

Afghanistan’s leading presidential candidate, Ashraf Ghani, vowed on Wednesday to sign a security agreement that would keep foreign troops in the country after their scheduled withdrawal at the end of 2014.

“I find the instrument to guarantee Afghanistan’s sovereignty,” he told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. “My commitment is to sign the agreement so that the intentional forces that are needed to support the building, equipping and training of Afghan security forces are in place.”

In an interview with Amanpour also on Wednesday, NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe, General Philip Breedlove, said he expected international forces to remain in the country after 2014.

Ghani, a former World Bank official, came back to Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban in 2001 to help with the transition to democracy.

He is now campaigning for president on a platform of beefing up security and the economy, and stamping out corruption that he calls a “cancer.”

He also, he told Amanpour, wants to change Afghanistan’s regional role as one “from rivalry to cooperation.”

“There is no competitive advantage in the game of nations,” he said.

Amanpour has also interviewed the other two leading presidential candidates in Afghanistan; you can watch those interviews here.

    Hey, Great website basically a heads up that I was getting instantly sent straight to the homepage if I viewed this internal web page; It looked like a web browser hi-jack or something, I’m not too absolutely certain but imagined you might be informed about it. Take care

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I am very glad to see such excellent info being shared freely out there.
