President Ghani and General Dostum’s disputes resolved

Afghan first vice president General Abdul Rashid Dostum has said the disputes between him and President Ghani was resolved after both leaders agreed to launch an investigation into his convoy ambush.

Afghan vice president said that according to the agreement reached between him and President Ghani, those hands involved in making attempt to take his life would be identified and punished in accordance with the law.

Hence, a demonstration which was earlier thought on to be held in northern Jowzjan province in favor of General Dostum would not happen as disputes are already resolved, according to him.

Dostum had earlier warned the government of holding a large demonstration in Jowzjan by his ethnic Uzbek people and his followers.

Addressing a group of people and reporters in northern Jowzjan province, General Dostum said on Tuesday that they have faded their disputes after Sibghatullah Mujaddedi and Turkish embassy in Kabul mediated with the issue.

In the meantime, Afghan National Liberation Front founder Sibghatullah Mujaddedi confirmed that he talked to both president Ghani and General Dostum and has mediated a settlement between them.

“The failed attempt to assassinate first vice president General Abdul Rashid Dostum which was allegedly designed by National Security Council is only a failed propaganda from the enemies of Afghanistan,” said Mujaddedi.

Taliban militants took control of Ghurmach district in northern Faryab province a couple of weeks ago which led to some disputes between president Ghani and General Dostum after the latter was heading toward the district to repel the militants’ attack when he faced an ambush by the Taliban.

He had also accused President Ghani and Chief Executive Abdullah of favoring the ethnic groups they are identified with.
