Saleh Seeks Support

Amrullah Saleh, first vice president to former president Ashraf Ghani, says under the constitution he is entitled to take over as president and has appealed for international support. Saleh is currently in the Tajik dominated Panjsher Valley along with Ahmad Massoud, son of the legendary Ahmad Shah Massoud who was assassinated by the Taliban. The Panjsher is the only corner of Afghanistan not under Taliban control.
