The Upper House of Parliament on Tuesday urged President Ashraf Ghani to suspend high-ranking security officials and appoint capable people to ensure the security in the country.

Afghan senators expressed concerns over recent deadly attacks in the country and asked the government to take strict action to diminish the security threats.

“Let’s sign a document and ask President Ghani to suspend officials from the three security organs immediately and then we should urge him to sign a decree on execution of all those who are sentenced to death in order to avenge for the blood of the people,” Senator Farhad Sakhi stressed.

At the same time, Senator Nesar Haris accused security officials for weakness and lack of capacities.

A number of senate members also emphasized that the key for ending war in Afghanistan is in the hand of foreign countries.

“The key for end of war in the country is in the hand of Afghanistan’s supporters which are not trying for a peace dialogue in Afghanistan. Terrorists have changed Afghanistan to a graveyard for the people,” Senator Nader Baloch said.

The Senate Speaker accused Pakistan for interfering in Afghanistan’s affairs.

“Under the name of Daesh, we are fighting with a country which supporting terrorists and is equipped with atomic bombs. This is a direct war with Pakistan; therefore, security and intelligence sectors require fundamental reforms,” Senate House Speaker Fazel Hadi Muslimyar concluded.

Afghan senators also believe that Afghanistan’s Bilateral Security Agreement with the United States of America must be reviewed, because the deal proved useless for the security forces and the people of Afghanistan.
