Afghan Senators claim the United States’ strategy against militant groups in Afghanistan has failed, warn if the signed security agreement with U.S. was not “honestly” implemented, the ongoing crisis would deepen even further in the country.
After the collapse of the Taliban region in 2001 and thereafter, with the presence of U.S. troops in Afghanistan, many believed the country would experience stability but it wasn’t the case as the conflict and insecurity being extended in the country.
The Second Deputy Speaker of Upper House (Meshrano Jirga) said the U.S. did not implement the commitments made for stability of Afghanistan and in most cases the Afghan-U.S. security agreement being violated and it caused the ongoing conflict to be extended in the country.
“U.S. has not been successful in Afghanistan war and dual policy being followed by the country, it has developed distrust among Afghan people,” Second Deputy Speaker of Upper House, Mohammad Asif Sediqi said.
“If the U.S. would have put pressure on Pakistan to end backing insurgent groups and the Afghan security forces properly supplied, Afghanistan would have reached to lasting peace and stability,” Sediqi added.
Meanwhile, some Afghan MPs stressed on the implementation of the signed security agreement with United States.
“We have signed the agreement with America and the purpose was to ensure security, but unfortunately the security crisis is ongoing and there is no honest support of international community with Afghanistan,” MP Fakur Behishti said.
It comes as Afghan security forces are battling against at least 20 militant groups, operating in country. MPs warn of if the forces do not receive the strong support and commitments of the U.S. and international community, the phenomenon of insurgency would spread to other countries in the region.
