Provincial governor for central Bamiyan province of Afghanistan Habiba Sarabi warned of civil war in Afghanistan if NATO troops leave the country and abandon Afghanistan beyond 2014.

Miss Sarabi in an interview with the BBC Afghanistan said, abandoning Afghanistan will be a repeatation of the 1990s mistake.

She said there are fears of crisis among different groups in Afghanistan if there was not regulatory power in Afghanistan.

In the meantime Afghan interior ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqi in response to Habiba Sarabi’s comments said Afghan security forces are capable of controlling the security situation and will prevent any illegal movement in the country.

Concerns regarding the security situation of Afghanistan after withdrawal of NATO troops is not a new issue.

Leader of the National Front Ahmad Zia Massoud also urged president Barack Obama to take necessary actions in order to resolve the political issues in Afghanistan before the presidential election in 2014.

He warned of civil war in Afghanistan if immediate steps were taken to resolve the issue.

Ahmad Zia Massoud said, the people of Afghanistan will be impatient and will go for a civil war if a free and transparent election was held in the country.

This comes as International Crisis Group earlier in a report warned that the Afghan government will collapse after NATO troops leave Afghanistan in 2014.

The International Crisis Group also urged for a free and fair election in a bid to prevent civil war.
