KABUL

Those working for the British troops took on bigger risks than soldiers but they were still denied settle in the United Kingdom, the CEO complained in an interview with The Sunday Express.

More than 7,000 Afghans had been part of British operations in Afghanistan from 2002 to 2014. Fifty percent of them acted as interpreters, hoping they would be granted asylum.

“My view is that these people have taken even bigger risks than the soldiers. They don’t all want to leave Afghanistan but those who took the risk were made a promise of having that opportunity,” he remarked.

If the West had not come to Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks in the US, Al Qaeda would have expanded its reach beyond anyone’s imagination, Abdullah believed.
