The Afghan government said on Friday it welcomed all the major conclusions of a new US strategy review on Afghanistan, particularly the recognition that the war against Taliban insurgents was a regional problem.

"We welcome the announcement made by President (Barack) Obama, agree with all major conclusions and the main outline of the strategic review," presidential spokesman Humayun Hamidzada said.

"We particularly welcome the recognition of the regional aspect of the problem in Afghanistan and specifically recognition that the al Qaeda threat is mainly emanating from Pakistan."
