Gen. David Petraeus Refers To The U.S.-Afghan Alliance As ConcreteSeptember 3rd, 2010 - 3:26 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
Washington, September 3, 2010 (Just Flashed): David Petraeus happens to be a General of the American army, who currently functions as the commanding officer of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan and also as the commandant of the U.S. Forces Afghanistan (USFOR-A). He has asserted to the journalists that the occasionally overwrought association between America and the Afghan President, Hamid Karzai, is, on the whole, concrete. Gen. Petraeus has mentioned that Karzai is as concerned as America about sleaze and subornment in his nation.
Petraeus admitted that hostility had been engendered this summer due to the incarceration of a significant adviser of Karzai in a bribery probe. The adviser named Mohammed Salehi was discharged subsequent to the intercession of Karzai. Petraeus voiced that he recently listened to Karzai pledging to the U.S. President, Barack Obama, that he will support the activities of the investigators to unearth the truth about this corruption case. These investigators have received strong ratification from America.
American bureaucrats have divulged that they look at the case of Mohammed Salehi as an examination of Karzai’s keenness to effectively combat graft and subornment in his administration. Salehi was seized by the Afghan police force subsequent to being wiretapped chatting about a bribe. This was the allegation against Salehi. Salehi dialed Karzai from his chamber in the dungeon in July and was unchained hours later. Immediately, Karzai disparaged the activities of the anti-bribery investigators involved in this case and craved additional power over them.
Gen. Petraeus has uttered to the correspondents that the disagreement and rancor over Salehi had been resolved amicably. Karzai is determined to hammer corruption and nip it in the bud. Gen. Petraeus has divulged that there is forthrightness in the alliance between Afghanistan and America. There are disagreements but that is an indication of the strength and genuineness of the alliance.
