'Afghanistan not packed in bag of last US soldier': Amrullah Saleh slams Taliban
Amrullah Saleh declared himself as the acting President of the country after the Taliban takeover and has joined hands with the Panjshir resistance forces.
Afghanistan’s acting president Amrullah Saleh on Tuesday took to Twitter to slam the Taliban amid the final pull out of US troops after 20 years of 'war on terror'. Saleh also sought to criticize America's hasty return from Afghanistan.
He said, "Afghanistan wasn't packed and put in the bag of the last US soldier. The country is here. The rivers are flowing and the mountains are majestic. Talibs are an unpopular proxy force and hated. That is why the whole country wants to escape from them. A superpower decided to be mini power that is OK."
The Afghan leader posted one of his old interviews on CBS' 60 Minutes along with the tweet, in which he is discussing about US' withdrawal from Afghanistan. Saleh is heard saying in the video that Afghanistan won't cease to exist if the US leaves - something which he used in his tweet text today too. He is also heard saying being a super power comes with a moral obligation, but if US decides to leave, it will be their choice.
"Afgh wasn't packed & put in the bag of the last US solider The country is here. D rivers are flowing & d mountains are majestic. Talibs R an unpopular proxy force & hated that is why the whole country wants to escape from them. A super power decided to be mini power that is OK," Saleh said in his tweet on Tuesday.
Amrullah Saleh declared himself as the acting President of the country after the Taliban takeover and has joined hands with the Panjshir resistance forces. He said only meaningful negotiations will be accepted.
On Monday, the United States ended a 20-year occupation of Afghanistan and departed from the country, leaving it in the hands of the Taliban. It is to be seen if the insurgent group sticks to its promise of forming a moderate, inclusive government.
