Former Afghan president Hamid Karzai has said that Washington is suffering setbacks in the war against terrorism in Afghanistan, therefore the U.S must seek support from countries such as Russia and China to fight insurgency in Afghanistan.
Speaking at a press conference in the Russian capital Moscow, Karzai criticized the deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan despite the presence of western troops and asked Washington to ask for help from Russian and China in fighting militancy and extremism.
"And this war has now been going on for 13/14 years, without the results that we all expected. Unfortunately, the Afghans suffered heavily in this war on terror. Terrorism and extremism rather than being defeated, or reduced, or eliminated, is steadily and widely on the rise."
In addition, Karzai said that the time has come for the US and its allies come together and talk about the challenges they face in the war on terrorism.
Karzai said the U.S leaders "should explain to the world whether they have failed in the war on terror, or if the war on terror has gotten out of hand."
Karzai stated that the situation in Afghanistan was still critical, adding that the Taliban and Daesh control some regions across the country.
