Ex-President Ashraf Ghani apologises for fleeing Kabul, saying he fled to save six million Afghans

Former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, who fled to the UAE before the Taliban seized power last month, issued an apology to the people for leaving Kabul.

“Leaving Kabul was the most difficult decision I’ve ever had to make,” he said, adding that he was sorry he “couldn’t make it end differently.”

“I owe an explanation to the Afghan people for abruptly leaving Kabul on August 15 after the Taliban unexpectedly entered the city. I left at the urging of palace security, who warned me that staying would result in the same horrific street-to-street fighting that the city had seen during the 1990s Civil War “Ghani stated in a statement posted on Twitter.

“I express my heartfelt gratitude and respect for the sacrifices made by all Afghans, particularly our Afghan soldiers and their families, over the last 40 years. It is with deep regret that my own chapter ended in similar tragedy to that of my predecessors – without ensuring stability and prosperity “He came to a conclusion.

Meanwhile, the Taliban have finalized the Afghan government, with Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund, who is on the UN blacklist, at the helm. The interim cabinet also includes Sirajuddin Haqqani, the feared Haqqani Network’s leader, who is wanted by the FBI.
