Patiala, January 15

Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan to India Farid Mamundzay today blamed the United States of America (USA) for the ongoing crisis in Afghanistan. Farid, who was in Patiala for a trade and business conference, said the sudden withdrawal of US troops led to a great damage to Afghanistan. He said, “They (USA) didn’t plan it well. The withdrawal was an irresponsible decision. The current situation in Afghanistan is all because of the withdrawal of troops. People of Afghanistan have continuously been suffering because of the withdrawal.”

He said that women in Afghanistan were suffering the most — ever since the Taliban took over the country. “People are sitting at homes. They are not doing jobs. They are not allowed to go to schools and colleges,” said Farid.
