“Long live Pakistan!” – these were the slogans protested in the center of Athens by foreigners on Kotzia Square.
A Greek citizen who wants to “visit” Taliban-infested Kabul does not need to watch a news release. Just walk down to Kotzia Square, newsbreak.gr writes.
The day before yesterday Pakistanis, waving flags, shouted: “Long live Pakistan!” The Greek government states that “there will be no covid marches in red areas and that mass demonstrations are prohibited due to the sanitary protocol as part of measures to protect the population from COVID19.
Thus, at a time when the international community condemns Pakistan for openly supporting the Taliban, the paintings in the center of Athens were reminiscent of Kabul. After a loud statement by Margaritis Shoinas (Vice-President of the European Commission), Afghans who rush to Greece will probably feel at home here.
Let us recall how previously wrote “Russian Athens”, the president of Afghanistan, resigned after the capture of Kabul by the Taliban. The Interior Ministry announced that it had reached an agreement with the militants to surrender the capital without storming. The militants reported taking control of the entire territory of the country.
An interim government is being set up to transfer power to the Taliban under the leadership of former Interior Minister Ahmad Jalali, Al Arabiya TV reported. Members of the Islamic group said that there was no fighting in the Afghan capital.
Reporters learned that the Taliban took control of the American military base Bagram, located in the northwest. The Puli-Charkhi prison in the east of Kabul, with five thousand prisoners, was also captured. Taliban supporters are already at large.
A little earlier, acting Afghan Interior Minister Abdullah Sattar made a video message online, where he said that there would be no battles for Kabul, and that power would pass peacefully.
