(MENAFN - Pajhwok Afghan News) TIRINKOT (Pajhwok): The governor of central Uruzgan province on Saturday said security forces in the province were 'incapable' because they had completely failed in preventing security incidents.
Asadullah Saeed, who recently took charge as the new governor of Uruzgan, was addressing a gathering of tribal elders who demanded stability and security from the governor.
The governor said he wanted to eliminate insecurity in Uruzgan and invite insurgent to reconciliation.
He said the current security situation in Uruzgan was not acceptable to him and added all security forces were irresponsible because they had failed to ensure security.
Saeed said an emergency meeting of security officials was held on Friday in which immediate stability in Tirinkot, the provincial capital, was discussed and a joint garrison comprised of all forces would be formed which would take over the security of the city.
He asked tribal elders to cooperate with the security establishment and refrain from releasing criminals.
