Participating in ‘The Afghan Poser’ panel session, Karzai said he had invited the US to Afghanistan to bring peace and stability and defeat extremism, but after coming to the country, they destroyed it. Karzai, who served as the president of Afghanistan between 2001 and 2014, fell out of favor with the US after he rejected the controversial bilateral security agreement between Washington and Kabul in the run up to 2014 Afghan presidential elections.
