"The potential for peace is great now than was in the past many years, so we need an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process and it must be inclusive," Stoltenberg went on to say.
Expressing support to the Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process, the NATO chief said he wants regional countries to help the Afghans in achieving peace in their country.
He said that NATO had decided to boost its presence and send more advisors to Afghanistan as the United States did to reduce Afghan forces' losses.
The NATO chief also stated that the alliance is here to help the Afghans and to save the alliance member states from terrorist attacks.
Speaking at the press conference, President Ghani expressed his gratitude to NATO for its support and said that Afghan Security and Defense forces is no more dependent but rather a partner to the alliance in the war on terror.
"The people of Afghanistan wants peace and the lasting peace can be achieved through regional cooperation and the world," he said.
