Acting US Defence Secretary Patrick Shanahan said he was encouraged by US peace talks with Afghan Taliban insurgents but added he had not yet been tasked with planning a full withdrawal of troops.
"We need to get a stable Afghanistan as an entity that can ensure security of America and Europe and others on the one hand, but more fundamentally our own democratic rights and institutions and our right to live in peace and harmony", Ghani told CNN's Fareed Zakaria.
Cautiously commenting the reported agreement in the Doha talks, President Ghani said: "We don't want to see the repetition of the then - President Mohammad - Najibullah's regime collapse and we are aware of the possible risks that threaten the country after peace".
According to the Associated Press, the president added, "There are values that are not disputable, such as national unity, national sovereignty and territorial integrity".
Like a variety of other Afghans, Nadery expressed concern that American officials, in their eagerness to reach a settlement and bring home US troops, would squander their leverage to force the Taliban to honor any pledge to share power or respect the democratic institutions and norms that have evolved since the fall of Taliban rule in 2001.
This comes after the United States special envoy held talks with President Ashraf Ghani to brief him on progresses in the peace talks with the Taliban.
That Taliban ruled Afghanistan under a harsh form of Islamic law from 1996 until the US -led invasion following the September 11 attacks.

"I and the people of Afghanistan want peace but it should be an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned process", the president asserted.
The Taliban have long refused to negotiate with the Afghan government, branding them "puppets".
The president's comments came as both U.S. and Taliban officials hailed progress after six days of talks in Qatar ended on Saturday.
A former Taliban leader said despite a agreement for an 18-month withdrawal, he predicted intense fighting ahead. No Afghan wants foreign troops to remain in their country indefinitely.
A senior American official said negotiations are still ongoing, according to the Times, and the drafted framework is only the first step toward a peace deal.
Ghani said based on an worldwide agreement, foreign troops will not be required in the future.
"We have a draft of the framework that has to be fleshed out before it becomes an agreement", Khalilzad told the Times on Monday. Shortly after assuming office, however, he was convinced to stay, and even increased the number of USA troops in the country by some 4,000.
The Taliban has so far refused to recognize the legitimacy of the USA -backed government in Kabul, a major sticking point.
The Taliban is widely believed to want a return to power in Afghanistan and to reimpose sharia law, although there is some uncertainty over whether they might loosen their hardline stance after a United States exit.
