Washington: US President Barack Obama has congratulated people of Afghanistan on the historic elections which he said promise to usher in the first democratic transfer of power in the war-ravaged country.


"On behalf of the American people, I congratulate the millions of Afghans who enthusiastically participated in the historic elections, which promise to usher in the first democratic transfer of power in Afghanistan's history," Obama said in a statement yesterday.

"The elections represent another important milestone in Afghans taking full responsibility for their country as the United States and our partners draw down our forces," Obama said.
