Afghan president condemns US-Russia drugs operation

Afghanistan says US-Russia raid violated sovereignty

Afghan President Hamid Karzai Saturday demanded an explanation from NATO's command in Afghanistan for a drugs raid carried out by the United States and Russia without his government's permission.

"No organization or institution has the right to carry out such military operations inside the territory of our country without permission and agreement from the Islamic Government of Afghanistan," a statement from his office said.

"Afghanistan condemns this act by NATO and announces that such unilateral operations are a clear violation of Afghan sovereignty as well as international law, and any repetition will be met by the required reaction from our side."
