Man mag von der Regierung in Afghanistan halten was man möchte: Während es im Westen nicht gelingen mag, eine gemeinsame Front gegen die iranischen Mullahs und die sunnitischen Jihadisten zu bilden, demonstrieren die Afghanen wie ein erfolgreicher War on Terror aussehen könnte:
Afghanistan has ordered a top European Union official and a United Nations staffer to leave the country for threatening national security, government and diplomatic officials said on Tuesday.
The two were declared persona non grata, apparently after allegations they had met with Taliban insurgents, a European diplomat said.
The office of President Hamid Karzai had at first announced at a press conference that the two, said to be British and Irish, had been arrested.
Spokesman Homayun Hamidzada later told AFP the pair, whom he did not identify, had been asked to leave the country.
Another official said that two of their Afghan colleagues had been arrested.
“The foreign nationals have been declared persona non grata and their Afghan colleagues have been arrested and are being investigated,” Hamidzada said.
