Grabar-Kitarović met with President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani and Prime Minister Abdullah Abdullah in Kabul yesterday, promising that Croatia would continue to assist Afghanistan in building peace and with social projects.
“I am proud that Croatia in the last 12 years was first to take part in the NATO and ISAF combat missions, and now in Operation Resolute Support,” said Ghani.
Grabar-Kitarović, who hopes to sign a comprehensive agreement of friendship and partnership with Afghanistan on her visit, said in her speech that ‘Croatia remains strongly committed to sovereign, secure, stable and unified Afghanistan.”
Croatia’s leader will also met with Afghanistan’s ministers of foreign affairs, defence, interior and women’s affairs. She will also hold talks with the commander of NATO’s Resolute Support Mission in Afghanistan, US Army General John F. Campbell and NATO’s Senior Civilian Representative in Afghanistan Ismail Aramaz.
There are currently around 20 Croatian soldiers serving in Afghanistan.
