World2 US leaders ask Biden to recognize Amrullah Saleh & Ahmad Massoud as gov of Afghanistan

Two US leaders ask Joe Biden to recognize Amrullah Saleh & Ahmad Massoud as the representatives of the government of Afghanistan.

US Senator Lindsey Graham and US Congressman Michael Gwaltzs ask US President Joe Biden to recognize Amrullah Saleh and Ahmad Massoud as the legitimate government representatives of Afghanistan saying, “They will be the front lines in the fight against global Islamic Extremism”.

A statement released by the Congressmen read: “After speaking with Afghan Vice President Amrullah Saleh and representatives of Ahmad Massoud, we are calling on the Biden Administration to recognize these leaders as the legitimate government representatives of Afghanistan. We ask the Biden Administration to recognize that the Afghan Constitution is still intact, and the Afghan Taliban takeover is illegal.”

“We call on President Biden to designate the Afghan Taliban as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, and we urge him to publicly support Congressional efforts to stand with our friends in the Panjshir Valley who will serve as a bulwark against regional terror,” they said.

Waltz, from Florida, in a statement, said the Biden administration should recognize that the Afghan constitution is still in force and the Taliban’s seizure of power is illegal.

They also said in the report that Panjshir in northeastern Afghanistan, which has not been taken over by the Taliban, should be declared a humanitarian zone.

The statement said that Saleh and Massoud chose to stay and fight for the freedom of the Afghan people and oppose extremism.

They also called on the president to designate the Afghan Taliban as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, and urge him to publicly support Congressional efforts to stand with “our friends in the Panjshir Valley who will serve as a bulwark against regional terror.”
