Earlier, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani had warmly thanked US troops for more than a decade of sacrifice since the 2001 overthrow of Taliban rule by a US-led invasion. “We do not now ask what the United States can do for us. We want to say what Afghanistan will do for itself and for the world,” said Ghani, turning around a famous phrase of former US leader John F. Kennedy.
