Taliban serving foreigners, says Hamid Karzai
Kabul: A deadly bombing in the Afghan capital during a visit by US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel shows that the Taliban want a "longer presence of foreigners, not their departure from Afghanistan", Afghan President Hamid Karzai said on Sunday.
The blast in Kabul Saturday killed at least nine people and wounded 14 others, CNN reported.
The Taliban "are serving the foreigners and are not against the foreigner", Karzai said.
A scheduled news conference between Hagel and Karzai was cancelled, and Pentagon spokesman George Little said the schedule had changed "for a variety of reasons, to include decisions related to security in Kabul that were reached in consultation with our Afghan partners".
