Clinton stresses on regional economic integration of Afghanistan

Delivering a speech on “Economic Statecraft” at the Singapore Management University, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton underscored the importance of regional economic integration for Afghanistan.

As the deadline for NATO-led troops withdrawal is drawing closer, forging stronger economic ties across the region is essential for Afghanistan, said Clinton.

“If you look at the map, you see why Afghanistan has been fought over and part of the great game for so many generations because of its very strategic position,” she said.

Clinton visions the New Silk Road connecting Afghanistan to the Central Asian economies and forging economic ties.

She emphasized on propping up Afghanistan’s economic future- the main door to ensuring stability and security in Afghanistan.
