Karzai's terms for BSA signing impractical: Abdullah (Video)

Karzai's terms for BSA signing impractical: Abdullah (Video)

KABUL (PAN): Key opposition leader Dr. Abdullah Abdullah has termed President Hamid Karzai’s new conditions for signing a vitally important security deal with the US until after next year’s elections as impractical and personal.

In an exclusive interview with Pajhwok Afghan News, the presidential candidate expressed his views in a broader spectrum about his future strategies if he wins the crucial presidential elections slated for April 5.

He touched upon the current situation of the country from various angles, especially speaking in detail about the bilateral security agreement (BSA) between Afghanistan and the US.

Criticising President Karzai’s 12-years long style of governance, the National Coalition of Afghanistan (NCA) leader noted Afghanistan had excellent opportunities to achieve tangible development and arrest peace but nothing extraordinary could be achieved during his rule.

The presidential candidate outlined his future strategies concerning governance, security, economic development, expansion in education opportunities and his policies toward neighbouring, regional countries and the international community.

About his decision to contest the presidential ballot for a second time, Abdullah said it was the insistence of his supporters to jump into the electoral fray one again.
