Former Afghan President Hamid Karzai says the US has failed to keep its promises in Afghanistan.

In an interview, he said the United States had reneged on its promise of protecting the country from external threats and developing its economy.

The former president said that the U.S. had failed to combat terrorism in Afghanistan, despite its presence in the country since 2002.
