Taliban could return, Karzai warns

The Taliban could make a comeback and take over Afghanistan again, the country’s President Hamid Karzai warned Monday at an international conference on Afghanistan’s future, CNN said. “If we lose this fight, we are threatened with a return to a situation like that before Sept 11, 2001,” Karzai said. There has been progress in Afghanistan since the overthrow of the Taliban in the wake of the hijacked plane attacks on the United States, he said. But, he warned, “Our shared goal of a stable, self-reliant Afghanistan is far from being achieved.” Karzai is chairing a meeting in Bonn, Germany, which hosted a similar summit 10 years ago, after the fall of the Taliban government of Afghanistan. He asked NATO to remain committed to Afghanistan after the pullout of foreign combat troops in 2014.
