‘Insurgents want to disrupt security and sabotage development projects’: President Ghani

The escalation of violence perpetuated by armed opposition groups is aimed at sabotaging the economic development projects in the country.

President Ashraf Ghani made these remarks during his visit to western Herat province on Monday.

Accompanied by senior government and security officials, President Ghani took stock of the security situation in Herat and held talks with provincial government officials.

Addressing a gathering of security personnel, President Ghani said the enemies are making desperate attempts to disrupt security and sabotage economic development projects.

Commending the security forces, President Ghani said the whole country stands behind them and the government is committed to honor their services.

“People in the country sleep peacefully because of your sacrifices, you are the guardians of national unity,” President Ghani told a gathering of police and military personnel.

Reiterating what he has said many times recently, President Ghani said the war has been imposed on the people of Afghanistan and the people are determined to resist it.

“The enemy wants to weaken us, but we are negotiating from the position of strength,” he said.

 He said the government will increase the benefits for the families of security personnel who have died in insurgency.

There has been an alarming escalation of violence across the country in recent weeks, especially since Taliban announced their annual spring offensive called ‘Azm’.

Last week, after the hotel attack in Wazir Akbar Khan area of Kabul, President Ghani said the enemy has admitted defeat on the battlefield and is now attacking civilians, including women and children.

“Our security forces once again proved that they are capable to defend our country and people against any threats and disruptive efforts,” said a statement issued by his office.

Meanwhile, President Ashraf Ghani has demanded that Pakistan end its support to armed opposition groups including Taliban and Haqqani Network

In a blistering letter to Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, President Ghani has enlisted seven key demands such as ending the undeclared war with Afghanistan and destroying the terror sanctuaries in Pakistan.

The letter asks political and military leadership of Pakistan to honor the commitments made to Afghanistan in terms of denying sanctuaries to Taliban militants in Pakistan.
