Abdullah Admits Government’s  Delay in Responding To Uruzgan Violence

KABUL - The chief Executive of the National Unity Government Abdullah Abdullah admitted the government has delayed to respond to the ongoing violence in southern Uruzgan province of Afghanistan.
However, Abdullah said the ongoing violence and conflict has no links with tribal and ethnic tensions, emphasizing that the Taliban group has claimed responsibility behind the clashes.
He made the remarks during a meeting of the Council of Ministers in Kabul today.
Abdullah further added that the attack by Taliban on Khas Uruzgan district has resulted to displacement of the local residents while civilians and police forces have also sustained casualties.
He said he has spoken with the MPs representing Uruzgan and other people regarding the issue, admitting that the government has acted in delay to respond to the issue.
This comes as the Second Vice President Sarwar Danish last week criticized the security forces for remaining reckless to act in support of the local residents against the Taliban attack and urged the residents of Khas Uruzgan to stand against the Taliban in defense of their dignity. (KP)
