He made the

remarks during a meeting with the acting ministers of defence and interior on


“Had a constructive meeting with

defence and interior ministers and assessed the unfortunate event which

happened in Mazar on Thursday. I told the delegation that from the very

beginning my team and I stressed on the peaceful resolution. Using the Afghan

National Defense and Security Forces against people must be avoided,” Noor said

in a statement which was issued after the meeting.

“Unfortunately some circles

infiltrated & changed the event to an unfortunate scenario. After serious

discussions with the defence and interior ministers, we came to a good

conclusion, the results of which will be announced to the Afghan nation soon,”

he added.

He also added “I would like to thank

people of Balkh for their full support and patience throughout this turbulent

period. I am happy they refrained from resorting to any sort of violence. I

have always stressed that Afghanistan needs national consensus on national

issues that ensures peace and unity.”

This comes as sporadic clashes broke

out in Mazar-e-Sharif city on Thursday afternoon, hours after Noor expressed

opposition regarding the circumstances surrounding the appointment of new

police chief for Balkh.

In the meantime, acting defence

minister Asadullah Khalid has said that Noor has no opposition with the

appointment of new police chief of Balkh and therefore Gen. Abdul Raqib Mubrez

will continue to his job as new police chief of Balkh.
