President

Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has said that the future of the Afghan National Defense

and Security Forces is not negotiable.

He made the

remarks during a gathering with the members of the Afghan National Defense and

Security Forces in Kabul on Tuesday.

Furthermore,

Ghani spoke regarding the intentions by certain circles to repeat the era after

the fall of the government of Dr. Najibullah in which the Afghan armed forces

collapsed.

Without

disclosing further information, Ghani promised that no deal would be made

regarding the future of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces.

He also

emphasized that any deal that would not guarantee the identity and the national

authority of the armed forces would not be accepted.

The Afghan

military collapsed due to the differences and conflict among the Mujahideen

groups after the fall of Dr. Najibullah’s government in early 90s.  

This comes

as the Taliban leader Sher Abbas Stanikzai had earlier said that Afghan army

should be dissolved after a peace deal is signed to end the conflict.
