AT-KABUL: As rumors are doing rounds in media that former president Hamid Karzai is becoming a threat to the political stability of the country by trying to undermine the National Unity Government and become a third time president, Karzai and the President Ashraf Ghani held a meeting the other day where Karzai told Ghani that he has no intention to return to power.
Karzai said that any government including the NUG, if compromises on national unity, sovereignty of the country, and Durand Line, will face stiff resistance from him.
Meeting of the two leaders was focused on the intelligence sharing deal signed between the intelligence agencies of Afghanistan and Pakistan. According to a source, Karzai told President Ghani he stood against the NDS-ISI deal because he considered it against the sovereignty of Afghanistan.
The accompanying delegation of Hamid Karzai was comprised of Zarar Ahmad Osmani, Rangeen Dadfar Spanta, Sadeq Mudaber, Khaliq Farahi and Karim Khoram. The delegation of President Ghani was comprised of National Security Advisor Hanif Atmar, Akram Khpalwak, the president’s advisor in financial affairs Omar Zakhelwal, the acting Minister of Defense Masoum Stankzai.
According to the source, the talks were held in a brotherly environment.
