Kabul : Amrullah Saleh on Thursday warned the Taliban as well as neighboring Pakistan after the Taliban captured the Rashtrapati Bhavan in the capital, Kabul, and President Ashraf Ghani left the country. He also appealed to world leaders to respect the rule of law and not violence. Amarullah, who is trying to unite all the political forces of the country against the Taliban, appealed to the global leaders not to bow down to the extremists.
“Afghanistan is too big for Pakistan to swallow, too big for Taliban to rule here,” Amarullah tweeted on Thursday. In another tweet, he said, ‘Different countries should respect the rule of law and not violence. Don’t let a chapter in your history tell you how you succumbed to Taliban extremists in future.
Saleh, who was Afghanistan’s Vice President since February 2020, announced on Tuesday that he is now the country’s acting president according to Afghanistan’s constitution after President Ghani’s escape. “According to the Constitution of Afghanistan, the Vice-President is the acting President in the event of the President’s absence, escape, resignation or death. At this time I am in my country and I am the legitimate Acting President.
He also said that the safety of Afghan citizens is of paramount importance and all leaders are being contacted to ensure this and build consensus on this. He made this tweet two days after the Taliban’s capture of Kabul. In a tweet a day earlier, he had warned Pakistan, “On our soil, with our people, for a cause and purpose, with a firm belief in the right move.” It is our legitimacy to oppose Pakistan-backed repression and brutal dictatorship. Saleh also said this week that it was useless to argue with the US president to defend his country.
