Ashraf Ghani defends his stance of fleeing Afghanistan

He explained that it was the only way to prevent bloodshed.

Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani on Wednesday has posted his first video since fleeing the war-torn country. Ghani can be seen defending his stance to flee Kabul at the right moment. He explained that it was the only way to prevent bloodshed.
 
He further denied claims by his country’s ambassador to Tajikistan that he had stolen millions from state funds. Ghani said that he was forced to leave Afghanistan with one set of traditional clothes, a vest and the sandals which he was wearing.
 
Several clips and images circulating on social media show the disturbing sentiment that has penetrated Afghanistan. Civilians are fearing the extremist Taliban would again snatch their rights and bring the country back by several decades.
 
Taliban’s conquest of Afghanistan comes soon after the US troops’ withdrawal from the country.
