Mend ties with US, political rivals tell Karzai

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Two opposition coalitions on Tuesday voiced their concerns over possible withdrawal of all US troops from Afghanistaninfo-icon, stressing immediate resolution of differences between the two countries.

The New York Times (NYT) quoted American and European officials as saying that Obama was reconsidering the option of leaving no troops in Afghanistan after 2014 before the June 27 video conference.

The complete withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan would fuel instability and insecurity in the country, the National Front spokesman, Ali Amiri, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

“Afghanistan is not in a position to ensure its development and stability or meet its needs. If the US move is enforced, President Karzai would be held responsible for the consequences,” he warned.

Continued links with the international community, particularly with the US, were in Afghanistan’s interest, believed the National Coalition, another opposition grouping.

Its spokesman Fazal Ahmad Orya said the government was embittering relations with the US and other nations. In the current situation, he insisted US military cooperation was vital to efforts at peace, stability and development.

Differences between the leaders of Afghanistan and the US had caused the current unpleasant situation, the Right and Justice party said. If the Bilateral Security Agreement was not signed, Afghanistan would be destabilized after the pullout of Americans forces.
