Gen. Rahman: Afghanistan facing ‘undeclared war’

Dec 24, 2016 - 15:17

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Deputy Interior Minister Gen. Abdul Rahman Rahman has said Afghanistan has been facing an ‘undeclared war’ but the Afghan security forces have the ability to combat it.

Rahman said this during a change of command ceremony that saw Col. Mohammad Ayub Husainkhel swearing in as new border police commander in the east.

Deputy interior minister Gen. Abdul Rahman said Hussainkhel’s elevation was due to his abilities.

He urged the new border police commander to do his best to strengthen cohesion among the force and resolve their logistics and training related problems.

In his address, the deputy minister said Afghanistan was currently facing an undeclared war, calling on security forces, particularly the border guards, to maintain effectively security along and control over the border.

Nangarhar governor Mohammad Gulab Mangal said Hussainkhel was a good commander and his appointment was a wise decision of the Interior Ministry.

Commander Hussainkhel, who replaces Col. Wali Khan Shinwari, said he would act in accordance with the law.

He vowed to implement on the law on himself first before asking his subordinates to do so.
