Afghan Senate to summon security officials for talks regarding US, NATO pacts

The Upper House Chairman Fazal Hadi Muslimyar said the Senate had in-depth discussions regarding the recent developments in the country, including discussions regarding the impact of the US and NATO security pacts on security of the country.
He said the Senate House decided to summon top security officials to brief the lawmakers regarding the affect of the security pacts on the situation, including their benefits and losses.
Muslimyar further added that the necessary decisions will be taken considering the situation if it was found that the security pacts have not proven as useful for the country.
According to Muslimyar, the Senate will urge the US and NATO to further strengthen the security and defense forces, specifically the Afghan Air Force, if the security officials provided positive feedback regarding the benefits of the pacts.
The security pacts with the United States and NATO were signed at the start of the government of national unity.
Although, major steps have been taken to strengthen the security and defense forces as part of the security pacts, certain observers believe that the security pacts did not have major impact on the security situation of the country as expected before the signing of the agreements.
