The president was addressing a meeting attended by Interior Ministry officials and police chiefs from all the 34 provinces at the Presidential Palace, his office said.

Karzai praised Afghan security forces for their sacrifices in the line of duty and defending the country and the people, a statement issued from his office said.

He said Afghan security forces should bravely protect the countrymen at a time when Afghanistan was passing through a critical juncture in its history.

Afghans needed to be courageous and wise in steering the country out of the turmoil, he stressed.

“As owners of this ancient and honourable country, we should not bow to any pressure that comes from outside through propagandas and should only think about future prosperity of our country and people.”

The president called the Interior Ministry’s report on security of polling centres as promising, adding the report showed the April vote would be transparent than the previous ones, but stressed foreign interferences should not be allowed in the election affairs.
