Ashraf Ghani releases first video post leaving Afghanistan
Kabul : Former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani had defended his decision to leave that nation, describing it as a way to prevent bloodshed. He also denied claims made by his country’s ambassador to Tajikistan that he stole millions of dollars from the state fund.
On Wednesday evening, Ghani posted a video on Facebook, confirming his whereabouts in Dubai (UAE).
He thanked Afghan forces in his video message and claimed "failure of the peace process" as the prime reason behind Taliban snatching power in Afghanistan.
He claimed that he was “forced to leave Afghanistan with one set of traditional clothes, a vest and the sandals I was wearing”.
“Accusations were charged in these days that money was transferred, these accusations are fully baseless,” he said.
Ghani left Afghanistan on Sunday just as the Taliban approached Kabul.
