Afghanistan interests be kept supreme: Abdullah
Former jihadi leader Abdul Rab Rassoul Sayyaf on Sunday while speaking at a ceremony arranged on the eve of Mujahideen’s victory over the Red Army, criticized the new government and said that his colleagues had decided to get united and announce their position on behalf of Afghans.
Jihadi leaders repeatedly criticized the unity government for not adjusting any jihadi figure in the new set-up.
Dr. Abdullah expressed serious reaction on the remarks voiced by some jihadi leaders on Sunday. During a meeting, the CEO said that it was a matter of proud for Afghans to kick soviet forces out from Afghanistan.
“I reassure Afghans that jihad is a holy cause and no one undermines it,” he said, adding the sacrifices rendered by Afghans during fight with Russian troops would be remembered for years.
He said that Afghans should consider and know about the problems the government was facing daily. Abdullah warned anyone reacting against the interests of the country would face action.
“Afghans need peace and stability and we assure you to explore all options to ensure peace in the country,” he added.
