Acting Foreign Minister Mohammad Haneef Atmar, who took his new office on Sunday, called on Afghan political leaders to end their rift, referring to the tensions between President Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah, which has remained unsolved despite national and international efforts.
Atmar said it is the time to prioritize the national interests, adding “the election is over for us.”
Ahmad, a commander of NDS special forces, who led the operation to arrest Aslam Farooqi, the leader of the Khorasan branch of Daesh, said the operation was the most complex and precise operation he had carried out in his seven years of duty.
Ahmad, a 26-year-old NDS commander, said he and his subordinates originally intended to arrest an explosives and weapons supplier named Shah Wali who was active in Kandahar, but Ahmad said his (Shah Wali's) arrest opened the way for further successive operations in Kandahar.
