Kabul: Former President Ashraf Ghani has fled the country after the Taliban took over Afghanistan. Earlier it was said that Ashraf Ghani had taken refuge in Tajikistan, but then it was said that he was going to Oman from Tajikistan. Now news has come that Ashraf Ghani has taken refuge in Abu Dhabi, the capital of UAE.
They will now be in Abu Dhabi. Earlier, Russian state media had claimed that President Ashraf Ghani, who was fleeing Afghanistan, carried notes in his bag. But due to space constraints, he had to leave a few bags full of notes on the runway.
Meanwhile, Anas Haqqani, a member of the Taliban’s political office, met with former Afghan presidents Hamid Karzai and Abdullah Abdullah in Kabul, a local Afghan agency said.
On Tuesday, Afghanistan’s Vice President Amrullah Saleh announced that he is in the country and is the legitimate acting president. Earlier there was news that Saleh was leaving the country with Guinea. In a tweet, Saleh said that in the event of the President’s absence, escape, death, the Vice President becomes the Acting President. I am currently inside the country and I am the acting President as per the Constitution. I am approaching all the leaders for support and consent.
In another tweet, he targeted Joe Biden, saying that it is useless to discuss Afghanistan with Joe Biden now. The Afghans have to prove that Afghanistan is not Vietnam and the Taliban are nowhere near like the communists in Vietnam. Unlike US-NATO, we have not lost our passion and are looking forward to great potential. Received warnings, join the protest.
