As security is in its worst situation ever in the past two decades and the Taliban are taking more territories than ever, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani visited eastern Nangarhar province on Thursday.

Ghani was leading a high-ranking officials’ delegation and visited Nangarhar province to assess its overall security.

It has now become the fourth Province after Khost, Blakh, and Herat to be visited by President Ghani in less than a month.

In Nangarhar Province, he chaired a security meeting and expressed his support to ANDSF personnel as he was talking to army officers in 201 Selab Corps.

Earlier on Tuesday, he had announced his six-month new security scheme which will change the overall security situation. Though no further details about the scheme have been exposed, the Taliban reacted to the scheme angrily and warned President Ghani to be responsible for whatever happens in the next six months.

Being top priority now, the National Security Advisor Hamdullah Muhib and army chief of staff General Wali Muhammad Ahmadzai visited Britain and India respectively and met their respective counterparts.

The focus on security by the Afghan government strengthens at a time when the Taliban now control over 200 districts and top US army officials called it a strategic momentum.
