Hekmatyar vows to fight Karzai and foreign troops
ISLAMABAD: In a video message on Tuesday, Afghan rebel leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar urged his people to rally together and drive all US and foreign troops from the country.
Mr Hekmatyar mocked the Afghan government of President Hamid Karzai, saying it was full of opportunists “fighting their own people under the command of foreigners.”
“I invite all Afghan factions to forget our differences ... and oust the foreign troops, cut the hands of the foreign meddlers,” Hekmatyar said.
Hekmatyar, said if attacks against the Americans continued, “it will be difficult for the American forces to move out of their bases.
Neither their convoys will be safe nor their bases.” —AP
