‘Secret groups’ trying to disrupt security: Massoud

‘Secret groups’ trying to disrupt security: Massoud

Jan 10, 2017 - 19:03

CHARIKAR (Pajhwok): President’s special representative for good governance Ahmad Zia Massoud Tuesday said ‘some specific groups in different countries’ were busy signing contracts for killing of the Afghans.

Massoud, talking to local officials and residents in the capital of central Parwan province, Charikar, said ‘some secret organizations’ were trying to disrupt security situation in Afghanistan.

Expecting increased attacks from terrorist organizations in spring next solar year, Massoud said: “Some specific groups in different countries are signing contracts everyday for the killing of Afghans, but their wish to do so would remain a dream because our security forces have the ability to defeat the enemy.”

However, he did not name any country or organization. He also said the political tension seriously affected the president’s performance. He stressed national unity that he said past governments did not pay attention to.

Parwan Governor Mohammad Asim Asim expressed concern over security situation in his province and said, “The enemy focuses more on Parwan for being close to Kabul and due to the Bagram airbase, but our forces always try to control the situation.”

Calling people’s support key to Afghan forces’ success, the governor said he had suggested the deployment of 600 Afghan Local Police (ALP) and highway police personnel to the organs concerned.

Asim asked the central government to revive the Jablus Saraj cement factory and construct the second Bagram-Jablus Saraj road lane.

Provincial council head Ghulam Bahauddin Jailani said the people of Parwan supported the government and security forces. He also said the government should improve security and launch development projects in the province.
