Kandahar Police Chief General Abdul Raziq has criticized the recent signing of an intelligence Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Afghanistan and Pakistan. Raziq asserted that Islamabad has continued to try and expand the war in Afghanistan while appearing as an ally.
General Raziq is one of the most well-known and respected police commanders in the country. He is famous for his merciless approach toward the Taliban militancy, and striking fear into the hearts of the government's enemies in south.
Officials from the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission on Saturday voiced concerns over government's move to distribute arms to so-called responsible persons in the provinces in a bid to help fight insurgents.
