Mobilising Forces Top Priority: Ghani

In a nationwide televised address, Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani did not indicate whether he intended to resign, merely saying “I will not let the imposed war on people cause more deaths”. He said he had begun extensive consultations with leaders, elders, political parties and international partners, “on achieving a reasonable and certain political solution”. He underscored that mobilisation of the armed forces was his top most priority, assuring that “serious steps are being taken in this regard”.
