Ashraf Ghani left Afghanistan to avoid bloodshed



Former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani mentioned in a social media post that he had to leave the country to not initiate bloodshed. The president's current location is unknown.
"Today, I came across a hard choice; I should stand to confront the armed Taliban who wanted to enter the palace or leave the dear country (Afghanistan) that I dedicated my life to guarding and protecting for the past twenty years," Ashraf Ghani said on social media.
After terrorists grabbed possession of the presidential palace in Kabul as US-led forces departed and Western nations hurried to evacuate their citizens, the Taliban announced the war in Afghanistan to be finished.
As Islamist militants seized the capital on Sunday, President Ashraf Ghani fled the country, claiming he wished to avoid bloodshed, while hundreds of Afghans anxious to flee swamped Kabul airport.
"Thanks to God, the country's battle is over." Naeem stated that the nature and shape of the future Afghan rule would be revealed soon, adding that the Taliban did not want to live in isolation and urging constructive international relations.
Almost all diplomatic workers, including Ambassador Ross Wilson, were at the airport early Monday, according to a US State Department official, and the American flag had been lowered and removed from the embassy premises.
