Karzai says West had role in bank crisis, wants US ties reviewed

KABUL, April 11 (Reuters) – Afghan President Hamid Karzai
blamed the international community on Monday for playing a part
in a huge corruption scandal at the country’s biggest lender,
and called for a traditional “jirga” summit to review strategic
ties with the United States.

The gathering of hundreds of community leaders should be
held in around two or three months, he said, adding that
Afghanistan would not be dominated by the bigger power.
