President Ghani Leaves For Shanghai Summit In Kazakhstan

President Ashraf Ghani left Kabul on Wednesday afternoon for Kazakhstan to participate in the 17th summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit, Ghani’s office said in a statement.

The statement said Ghani will also deliver a speech at the summit and will meet with officials from a number of countries at sideline meetings.

The summit is scheduled to take place on 8-9 June in Astana, Kazakhstan.

Before leaving, Ghani condemned the attacks in Tehran in Iran and said “insurgents in the past week have targeted civilians in Kabul, Tehran and London which shows clearly that they are against civilization and humanity.”

Terrorists carried out an attack on Iran’s Parliament (Majlis) and Ayatollah Khomeini’s mausoleum in Tehran on Wednesday, killing at least a dozen people.

According to Iran’s Press TV, at least 12 people have been killed in Wednesday’s attacks while another 42 were injured and admitted to three hospitals for treatment.

The Daesh Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attacks.

The first attack was on parliament when at least four gunmen, disguised as women, entered the visitor’s hall of the building, and opened fire on the security guards.

The assailants were all killed by security forces following the attack.

“The people of Afghanistan are feeling the pain of our neighbor Iran,” Ghani said and called for joint fighting against the insurgency.

“Afghanistan has been on the frontline of the fight against insurgency for years. We are expecting that all our neighboring countries have taken the threats seriously and fight against these groups and their safe havens,” Ghani said.
