KABUL: Afghan National Security Adviser Mohamad Anif Atmar resigned on Saturday due to "serious differences over policies and approaches at the top level of government", the media reported.

According to TOLO News, Atmar's letter of resignation stated that he differed in opinion "when it came to national unity, national consensus, peace and security political management, electoral affairs, good governance and regional affairs."

"I am stepping down because we haven't reached a consensus," Atmar stated in the letter.
