He also listened to the information and recommendation shared by the 205th Atal Corps and thanked them for their sacrifices while insisting on the justified efforts of the Afghan armed forces.

President Ghani also hailed the Afghan Air Force personnel for their efforts and issued necessary instructions for the promotion of the soldiers, sergeants, and officers.

In other parts of his speech, President Ghani thanked the personnel of the 205th Atal Corps for their justified demands to equip and strengthen the Afghan armed forces as he emphasized that such demands are not personal but aimed at the bolstering the capabilities of the armed forces.
