Afghan president blames the country’s deteriorating security situation on the US decision to withdraw troops by August 31.
Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani has blamed the country’s deteriorating security on the United States deciding “abruptly” to withdraw its troops.
Presenting his security plan before Parliament on Monday, Ghani said the situation in the war-torn nation will be “under control within six months”, adding that the US has pledged its full support.
The reason for our current situation is that the decision was taken abruptly,” he told Parliament, adding THAT he had warned Washington THAT the withdrawal would have “consequences”.
The president added that “protection of the people” is a duty he will maintain.
After his address, both houses of parliament released a joint statement, expressing their full support for Ghani’s security plan.
