Daudzai quoted out of context: Afghan embassy
In an editorial, the Nation newspaper quoted Daudzai as saying that the US was a common enemy of Afghanistan and Pakistan, the embassy said in a statement. It strongly condemned the paper, saying Daudzai had never made a statement like that.
The envoy had told the newspaper during an interview in categorical terms that the US, Pakistan and Afghanistan were natural allies, the embassy added.
The embassy asked the Nation and other media outlets to uphold journalistic norms and principals.
The newspaper editor, Salim Bukhari, said if the embassy sent them a clarification, they would publish it. However, he did not go in details.
