FARAKHABAR: Dispute Stops NSC’s Weekly Meetings
In the last three weeks, the weekly meeting of the National Security Council (NSC) was not been held in the presidential palace and meetings of the Supreme Commander were held instead, sources said.
Sources from the government said the NSC meetings were not held because of a dispute on the Chief Executive Officer’s (CEO) second deputy Mohammad Mohaqiq’s appearance at the meetings.
According to the sources, following Mohaqiq’s remarks in Iran over the Syria war in November and his appreciation of the fighters who defeated Daesh in Syria, including the Afghan fighters, president Ashraf Ghani wanted to dismiss Mohaqiq from NSC meeting. However, Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah opposed the president.
In this episode of Farakhabar, host Fawad Aman discusses the topic with the following guests:
• Parliament secretary Abdul Qadir Zazai Watandost
• Political activist Ajmal Baluchzada
