Hamid Karzai has released a video with his young daughters calling for the lives and property of Afghans to be protected.
“To my dear fellow Kabul citizens: I and my family, my little girls and children, will stay here, along with you, and we hope the problems of our country and our capital will be solved in a good way through peace talks,” he said.
“We urge national forces and the forces of the Taliban Islamic movement to pay attention to and protect the safety of people’s lives and property, wherever they are.
“I ask the people to stay in their homes and remain calm. We are trying to talk to Taliban leaders in a peaceful, brotherly and patriotic way, to solve the problems of Afghanistan.”
