0

KABUL: The United States has welcomed a power-sharing deal that saw former finance minister Ashraf Ghani declared Afghanistan’s next president, and said it hopes a crucial security agreement will be signed within a week. Ghani and his rival Abdullah Abdullah struck the deal on Sunday, ending a three-month standoff over disputed elections that had paralyzed the country at a key moment with US-led foreign troops winding down their 13-year war against the Taliban.
