Afghanistan's State Minister for Security Reforms resigns

ANI  |  Kabul [Afghanistan] 

Afghanistan' State Minister for Security Reforms Amrullah Saleh has resigned without citing any reason.

Saleh, who previously served as the head of the National Directorate of Security (NDS), was appointed as State Minister for Security Reforms in March this year.

He announced his resignation on his page, but did not provide further details.

Saleh informed that he had handed in his resignation to President Ashraf Ghani and to Chief Executive of Abdullah Abdullah, reports the Tolo News.

Saleh's resignation comes as the security situation in the country has deteriorated in recent weeks.

More than 100 people were killed and several others injured in the recent two terror attacks in the country.
