Ex Afghanistan President apologizes for fleeing.

Written by on September 9, 2021

Former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has apologised to the people of Afghanistan after fleeing to take refuge in the United Arab Emirates.

“Leaving Kabul was the most difficult decision of my life,” he said, adding that he was sorry he “could not make it end differently”.

Mr Ghani abruptly left Afghanistan as Taliban militants advanced on the capital on 15 August.

He said he had not intended to abandon his people but “it was the only way”.

In a statement shared on Twitter today, Mr Ghani said he had no choice but to leave the country in order to avoid widespread violence.

He said he had devoted 20 years to helping Afghanistan become a “democratic, prosperous and sovereign state”.

Earlier this week the Taliban, which seized control of Afghanistan in a sweeping offensive more than three weeks ago, announced the formation of an all-male interim government to rule the country.
