Former Afghan president Ghani sorry that ‘I could not make it end differently’

Former Afghan president Ashraf Ghani, who fled the country last month as the Taliban entered Kabul, apologizes to the Afghan people, because “I could not make it end differently.”

In a statement on Twitter, Ghani says he left at the urging of the palace security in order to avoid the risk of bloody street fighting, and again denies stealing millions from the treasury.

“Leaving Kabul was the most difficult decision of my life, but I believed it was the only way to keep the guns silent and save Kabul and her 6 million citizens,” he adds.
