The Vice President of Afghanistan has declared himself the acting head of state. He called for resistance to the Taliban

Vice President of Afghanistan Amrullah Saleh declared himself the legitimate head of state.

On Twitter, Saleh recalled that according to the Constitution of Afghanistan, in the absence of the president, the vice president is the acting head of state.

Saleh stressed that he is now in the country and is now establishing contact with world leaders in order to enlist their support.

Saleh also called on Afghans to join the resistance to the Taliban. “We must prove that Afghanistan is not Vietnam, but the  Taliban  is not even remotely the Viet Cong army,” the politician said.

The Taliban seized control of Kabul on August 15 without a fight, after which the authorities left the city. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled the country – he later explained this by saying that he wanted to “stop the bloodshed.” Where he is now is not known for certain. There were reports that Ghani flew to Tajikistan, Uzbekistan or Oman.

  • Saleh is very brave…
    Or does he have a large, well-trained and armed combat force at his disposal?
    Or is he just a fool?
    Or is he working together with the Taliban?

  • I fear that Mr Saleh is about to find how it is to be Ukrainian. His allies have washed their hands of him and the wolves are closing in.
    It will be the comeback of the century if he can regroup his army and drive the savages back under the rocks they slithered out of.
