Afghan President Ashraf Ghani met here Wednesday with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of U.S. army General Joseph Dunford and discussed various topics including Afghan security situation, said Afghan Presidential Palace.

The two sides discussed U.S.-Afghan bilateral ties and the U.S. support for the Afghan security forces, the palace said in a statement.

The top U.S. military officer's trip to Afghanistan is a clear indication of the U.S. long-term commitment to Afghanistan, it added.

General Dunford will assess thoroughly the Afghan security situation and based on the assessment, he will share his suggestion with the U.S. administration to review the U.S. plan for sending additional forces to Afghanistan for training, advising and assisting Afghan forces, the statement noted.

Ghani thanked Dunford for U.S. enduring commitment to Afghanistan, the statement said.
