Kabul (BNA) Aimal Faizi, spokesman to the President of Afghanistan rejects NATO Secretary General’s statement about President Karzai’s recent remarks and called NATO’s war in Afghanistan aimless.
Speaking to the state news agency, BNA, Faizi said, “the people of Afghanistan ask NATO to define the purpose and aim of the so-called war on terror, as they question why after a decade, this war in their country has failed to achieve its stated goals, but rather has resulted in the loss of thousands of innocent lives and destruction of their homes.”
Faizi added, “The people of Afghanistan ask NATO Secretary General that while it is clearly known to NATO that terrorism sanctuaries are outside Afghanistan, why this war then continues in their homes and villages unproductively?”
Therefore, the Afghan people consider this war as aimless and unwise to continue.
