Afghan Govt. Describes NATO’s Mission as Aimless
Kabul – President Karzai’s spokesman Aimal Faizi on Tuesday said that the Nato’s mission in Afghanistan was “unwise and aimless”. The comment comes a day after Nato’s Secretary General Andres FoghRasumusen described President Hamid Karzai’s anti-western remarks as “absolutely ridiculous”. President Karzai has recently said that the Taliban and foreign troops are colluding to extend the presence of Nato forces in Afghanistan, a statement which has provoked tensions between the Afghan government and Nato.
Speaking to the state news agency, Bakhtar, Faizi said: “The people of Afghanistan ask NATO to define the purpose and aim of the so-called war on terror, as they question why after a decade, this war in their country has failed to achieve its stated goals, but rather has resulted in the loss of thousands of innocent lives and destruction of their homes.” “The people of Afghanistan ask NATO Secretary General that while it is clearly known to NATO that terrorism sanctuaries are outside Afghanistan, why this war then continues in their homes and villages,” said Faizi.
