The president also stated that foreign intelligence agencies are behind the recent complex terrorist attacks in Kabul. With regard to the increasing terrorist attacks and creating obstacles on the way to peace, the president said that the people of Afghanistan are doubtful that US is either no effective over countries who support terrorism or the opponents of peace process of Afghanistan in the region or before them, they have no determination to exert influence. President Karzai said that the people of Afghanistan want explanation from the US in this regard.
