United States seeks sanctions on Afghan National Security Advisor Hamdullah Mohab
Reporter: Soraya Ahadi
The United States is trying to ban the issuance of visa for the Afghan National Security Advisor. After the Afghan National Security Advisor told reporters that Zalmay Khalilzad talks with Taliban are doubtful to condemn the recent talks between US and Taliban officials in Qatar, US officials have now announced that they will try to avoid issuing visa for him. An American official said: “Although wife of Mr. Hamdullah Moheb is a US citizen, but we are trying to prevent him from subsequently issuing a visa to enter the United States.”
Afghan security adviser told to media a few days ago: “Zalmay Khalilzad is trying to gain power in Afghanistan. Mr. Mohab said: “as I know Zalmay Khalilzad and as I recognize Mr. Khalilzad, he already tried twice to be candidate for the presidential election in Afghanistan, but he did not succeed, he is now trying to negotiate with the Taliban, to establish an interim government in Afghanistan and to take political power in his hand.”
With much effort, we were unable to have the view of the US embassy in Kabul, as well as the National Security Council officials regarding to this issue. However, after harsh criticism from the Afghan National Security Advisor, Donald Trump held the secret meeting with his senior administration officials, and some decisions were made in connection with Afghanistan, but details have not yet been made available to the media.
