MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson hailed on Saturday the role the United Kingdom is playing to ensure stability and security in Afghanistan, on his first ever visit to the country.
"Afghanistan is an amazing country and I’m incredibly proud of the work that the UK is doing here to challenge extremism and terrorism, promote democracy and human rights and support the Afghan Government’s reform plans," Jonson said as quoted in the official statement.
"Our work also means that terrorism is increasingly tackled at source," he added.
During his one-day visit to Kabul, Johnson met with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah. He also paid a visit to the Afghan National Army Officer Academy to meet British military trainers.
