Former Afghan President, Hamid Karzai, has accused the US of collaborating with the Islamic State (IS) in Afghanistan.
In an interview with a television channel, Karzai alleged that IS had been allowed to gain a foothold in the country with US approval.
“In my view under the full presence, surveillance, military, political, intelligence, Da’ish [IS] has emerged,” he said, referring to the group with its Arabic name.
“And for two years the Afghan people came, cried loud about their suffering, of violations. Nothing was done,” he alleged.
