Abdullah ‘is OK’ with Dostum’s return from exile

13 Jul 2018 Afghanistan Times

AT-KABUL: Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah has said that he has no problem with the return of the first vice president Gen. Abdul Rashid Dostum from exile.

Following accusations of rape and torture by a political rival Ahmad Ischi, Dostum left Kabul for Turkey in May 2017 and has since been living in exile. However, he attempted a return a few months ago, but his aircraft was not allowed to land in Afghanistan.

Dr. Abdullah told reporters on the sidelines of a NATO heads of state summit in Brussels, the capital of Belgium that at a time when peace talks were being pushed with the Taliban such personalities should not be abroad. “Personally, I am not against his return to the country,” the CEO said of Dostum.

About protests against the arrest of Commander Nizamuddin Qaisari, one of Dostum’s commanders, Abdullah said the government valued people’s demands, but these requests should be lawful and should not create problems.
