Kabul, Aug 24 (IANS) Afghanistan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has signed a decree for the implementation of a partnership agreement signed previously by Kabul and Washington, the presidential palace said on Thursday.

The Office of the President said the decree was signed on Wednesday during the meeting of Bilateral Compact Executive Committee, known as Compact. It was attended by high level officials from both countries, including the US Embassy Charge d’Affaires and Commander of the US forces for Afghanistan, Khaama Press reported.

"The Compact is an Afghan-led initiative to demonstrate the government’s commitment to creating a peaceful, stable, and prosperous society and is an important factor upon which the US relied when developing key components of the US South Asia Policy, launched by President Donald Trump on August 21," the palace said in a statement.

During the meeting, Afghan and US working groups highlighted the completion of the Compact’s four matrices focusing on governance, economics, peace and reconciliation, and security.

The partnership agreement was signed by former US President Barack Obama and former Afghan President Hamid Karzai in 2012.
