Afghan President Ashraf Ghani on Monday said his country is not a threat to any other country.
"Afghanistan is an independent country and will remain so for hundreds of years to come," Ghani said here.
"Those who want to change Afghanistan into a battle field will take their wishes to the grave with them."
The President also expressed his appreciation for the efforts of the security forces and said: "Mawlawi Salam, [Taliban's shadow governor for Kunduz] and his fighters were eliminated in Kunduz because of you."
"Terrorists do not have the ability to face Afghan security forces," he said.
