The Daily Telegraph, 30 January 2013
The British daily reports about AAN’s latest report, authored by Noah Arjomand, looking at the project of refurbishing the Kajaki dam which was supposed to bring electricity to Kandahar but didn’t so far. It also has a reaction from the UK’s Ministry of Defence said: ‘The decision for UK troops to transport the turbine was made by ISAF and was based on military guidance. In 2008 British troops were operating in the Kajaki area and had access to the capabilities required to transport the turbines, therefore it made military sense for UK forces to lead the mission.’
