Afghanistan (Pashtun and Persian (Dari) افغانستان Afghānestān, officially Islamic Republic of Afghanistan) is a landlocked country of South Asia at the interface of South to Central Asia, bordering on Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, the People’s Republic of China and Pakistan. Three quarters of the country consists of difficult to access mountain regions.
After the invasion of the Soviet Union in 1979, Mujahideen, financed by the United States and Saudi Arabia, defeated the Soviet-backed government.
Following the terrorist attacks in the United States on September 11, 2001, the Taliban regime, which had sheltered members of terrorist organizations, was overthrown in the United States-led war on terror. Since then, this war has determined events.
The country has been an Islamic republic since 2004. From 2004 to 2014 Hamid Karzai was the President of Afghanistan. After the presidential election in 2014 Aschraf Ghani was declared the winner and on 29 September 2014 sworn in as head of state.
