Afghanistan Rejects Iran's Reference

It seems that there was some sort of confusion when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called for the peoples of the Middle East and Afghanistan to join forces to drive out foreign troops...

First: He'd better take this issue up with the
most relevant of Afganistan: The Children.

They are: Pashtun 42%, Tajik 27%, Hazara 9%, Uzbek 9%, Aimak 4%, Turkmen 3%, Baloch 6%... And, while it is true that many have only known the troop's presence; the population of those who can read or write (females too!) increased by 70% since the troop's arrival; A sharp decline in the Food and waterborne diseases (which used to take their lives) And a future with a government by which they will (someday) participate!
Second: While the Iranian Regime prefers to use the transparency of American MEDIA to exploit US freedoms of speech; yet deny basic Human rights to their citizens...Here's what the adults say:

Afghanistan rejects Iran's call to oust "occupiers"
Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman
KABUL: Afghanistan defended Monday the presence of the nearly 40,000 foreign troops on its soil, rejecting Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's statement that they were "occupiers" and should be made to leave.

"These forces are not occupiers," Afghan foreign ministry spokesman Sultan Ahmad Baheen told French news agency.

"The presence of foreign troops in Afghanistan is based on a United Nations Security Council resolution. They are here to prevent Afghanistan becoming a safe haven for terrorists," Baheen said.

"These forces will go back home when this is achieved," the spokesman said. "Iran understands this." full story

There are nearly 31,000 NATO-led International Security Assistance Force troops in Afghanistan and about 10,000 more foreign soldiers with a separate US-led anti-terror coalition.
