Abdullah and Turkish PM discuss Gen. Dostum’s return to Afghanistan

KABUL (Sarzameen News)- The Chief Executive of the Government of National Unity Abdullah Abdullah and the Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım held talks regarding the return of the First vice President of Afghanistan Gen. Abdul Rashid Dostum to Kabul.

Speaking during a press conference with Mr. Yıldırım, the Chief Executive of the Unity Government Abdullah Abdullahs said negotiations were made in this regard during his meeting with the Turkish Prime Minister.

Without disclosing further information, Abdullah told reporters that Mr. Yıldırım will hold more talks in this regard during his meeting President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani.

Dostum is currently residing in Turkey and is accused of grave human rights violations, including a sexual assault and kidnapping of ex-Jawzjan governor Ahmad Ischi by his guards, a charge which he and his office have repeatedly rejected.

Dostum left the country for Turkey few months earlier amid ongoing controversies regarding his alleged involvement in the sexual abuse of Ishchi.

A spokesman for Junbish-e-Millie party Kanishka Turkistani earlier this year had said that the health condition of Gen. Dostum has improved, his medical treatment has concluded along with some other works in Turkey, and he will return to the country soon as there are no barriers available at the moment for his return.
