The situation in Afghanistan is getting worse if the US assistance does not continue to Afghan government, Afghanistan would face a major crisis, said United States former ambassador to Afghanistan.
US ex-ambassador for Afghanistan, Zulmay Khalilzad in an interview with Ariana news considering the situation said Afghanistan situation is still fragile, citing in some cases there are risks of deterioration.
“If US supports would not continue to Afghanistan, the country would fail to grapple with these challenges,” said Zulmay Khalilzad, US former ambassador to Afghanistan.
Khalilzad declared that Pakistan is the main factor for Afghanistan’s challenges and attempts to dominate Afghanistan with high costs.
“The United States also wants to change Pakistan’s policy against Afghanistan but does not have enough influence on Pakistan in this term,” noted Khalilzad.
He emphasized that since the formation of National Unity Government the situation got worse and Afghans’ hope reduced for future.
“With the formation of National Unity Government the security and economic situation deteriorate. further steps must be to solve these challenges,” added Khalilzad.
Previously, NATO officials vowed to continue military assistance to Afghan security forces as long as Afghanistan is not to achieve stability and will keep troops after 2016 in Afghanistan.
