No one from inside govt helps Daesh: Ghani

Dec 02, 2017 - 16:55

KABUL (Pajhwok): President Ashraf Ghani on Saturday demanded evidence from those who allege Afghan officials are supporting Daesh.

“They should prove their claim in the court and in the meantime take responsibility for failure of proving their allegations,” the president expressed these views at a gathering marking the transfer of Border Police Forces authority to the Ministry of Defense.

“I would like to pay tribute to the Afghan security forces for their sacrifices defending this country,” said the president.

“It is your true fight and sacrifice that today we have won in political arena. Your victory resulted in the form of the new US strategy.”

Ghani also thanked Wolesi Jirga Speaker Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi and Senate Chairman Fazal Hadi Muslimyar for their leadership.

“Every soldier of us is volunteering to defend their country, no one is forced to join ANSDF, our forces belong to all Afghans and are a true reflection of our national unity,” Ghani believed.

Referring to reforms, the president said the unity government has implemented comprehensive reforms in security entities.

He added the government would invest further in the border police forces. “Our international partners will be supporting us to achieve our development goals.”

“It was the sacrifice of our 13 police officers who stood in front of a biggest suicide attack and saved diplomatic missions and prevented catastrophe,” he added.

The president said the Afghan Special Forces and commandos had not lost any battle and they were the pride of the nation.

“One of the major goals of the Afghan Border Force in future will be to provide security to major international projects,” he informed.

 “We are now in a defensive mode due to the efforts and leadership of ANDSF. In four years, Afghanistan will have an absolute national security and defense forces to bring order and security to the country.”

Ghani said nine districts had been cleared of Daesh presence the Afghan forces and the outfit was on the run in Afghanistan.

“Some 300 operations were conducted against Daesh. Our forces have defeated them and many of them have been eliminated,” he said.

Ghani added a handful of individuals in the country were propagating against government officials, which he rejected as baseless and enemy propaganda.

“My security leadership team has the full confidence of me and the confidence of the entire nation,” he informed.
