NSA Mohib’s Criticism of Peace Process Affects Afghan-US Bilateral Ties: US

A statement by US Embassy in Afghanistan said that that US Under Secretary for Political Affairs David Hale summoned Afghan National Security Advisor Hamdullah Mohib March 14 to reject the public comments attributed to National Security Advisor Mohib criticizing the U.S. approach to reconciliation.

“Under Secretary Hale underscored the longstanding U.S. assistance and support to Afghanistan, and expressed our commitment to the Afghan government’s stability and full participation in the peace process. He also reminded National Security Advisor Mohib that Special Representative Khalilzad represents the Secretary, and that attacks on Ambassador Khalilzad are attacks on the Department and only serve to hinder the bilateral relationship and the peace process”, the statement by US Embassy in Afghanistan said.

This comes after NSA Mohib criticised the US government for keeping Afghan government in the shadow during talks with Taliban and the Afghan peace process.
