Kerry cautions new Afghani government plans

  • Afghani presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah says he will offer plans for his own national government today, after accusing rival Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai of ballot-rigging.
  • Replying to the announcement, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry declared that any proposal for a parallel government in Afghanistan will jeopardize U.S. support for the country.
  • "Any action to take power by extra-legal means will cost Afghanistan the financial and security support of the United States and the international community," says Kerry.

    After almost 12 years of involvement in Afghanistan, unfortunately some print or electronic journalist still can not get some basic facts right about torn war country. It's incorrect to say " Afghani presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah says he will ......"

     

    Rather it should say" An Afghan presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah says he will......"

     

    "AFGHANI" is Afghanistan's currency. Please get some basic facts right. It poorly reflects on ones own professional journalistic image. If one not sure, one seek knowledge.

     

    Sincerely,

     

    unknown person

     

    A proud Afghan/American

    it is shameful not to be able to differentiate between Afghan and Afghani :) Afghan is adjective form for a resident/possession of Afghanistan. Afghani is name of the Afghan currency.
