Afghanistan will send a team to the US to take part in a major policy review of the region, Afghan President Hamid Karzai has announced. In a joint news conference with the new US envoy in the region, Richard Holbrooke, Mr. Karzai said he was “very thankful” to be involved in the talks.
In recent weeks US officials have been critical of Mr. Karzai’s leadership. US President Barack Obama, who regards Afghanistan as a priority, accused his government of being “very detached”.
Is always amazing when you read something like that. So they were going to talk about the future of Afghanistan without including the people of Afghanistan in this talk? That says something on how American foreign policy worked all these years and why Americans are so popular all around the world!
