Former Afghan chief executive Abdullah Abdullah says the agreement between the Taliban and the US was too weak on the issue of “peace”. He has called former Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani a ‘traitor’. Ashraf Ghani fled the country shortly before the Taliban entered Kabul. He first went to Tajikistan and then took refuge in Dubai on ‘humanitarian grounds’.
Abdullah Abdullah while talking to India Today said that there were many flaws in our system, one wrong election after another, Ghani’s not trusting the people and mistrust between him and the leadership, corruption were some of the factors that led to the country is in today’s condition. He said that when the US signed a deal with the Taliban under the Doha accord, peace was its weakest part.
I will not leave Afghanistan till I die
Abdullah is still in Kabul even after being captured by the Taliban. Regarding the former Afghan President, he said that to leave the country means to join the traitors like Ashraf Ghani, which I will not do till my death. He said that the decision to stay in Kabul is a decision to stand with those who supported us and respected us as leaders. ‘I have no regrets about living in Afghanistan,’ Abdullah said.
