    To All Korean Brave People.

    I am very sorry for being kidnapping those korean who came to afghanistan for helping Afghan people, Those who Kidnapped the Korean are not afghan coz afghan people love their guest and they are so hospitalited people.
    I hope very soon all them be released and get back to their home safe.

  • The Korean government needs to keep its troops in Afghanistan and break the pact it made with the Taliban. Negotiations with kidnappers are not valid. The Korean people should not get their marching orders from the Taliban!
