Tue Jul 31, 12:12 pm
Members of Wolesi Jirga, Afghanistan’s Lower House of Parliament, during Monday’s general session expressed their strong concerns about the advancing of Pakistani and Iranian border troops onto Afghanistan’s soil.
MPs said they have witnessed that Pakistan has repeatedly interfered in Afghanistan and its troops have come forward and made advances on Afghan soil.
They asked the Afghan forces to seriously deal with the issue.
Asking for serious monitoring of government’s performance, some other lawmakers suggested that a surveillance system should be active in the House commissions.
The MPs urged the House should develop its own monitoring programs in order to improve the functions of parliamentary commission and to eliminate corruption from government departments.
Meanwhile, the House approved several laws including the appointment of diplomatic staff, the agreement between the Afghan government and the Dominican Republic, the agreement on training Afghan forces by Turkey, the draft law of amendments of Afghanistan and the proposed draft for the preservation of cultural properties.
