'Most parliamentarians in the Afghani parliament voted to revise the country’s security agreement with the United States, including allowing permanent US military bases to remain on Afghan soil. This major development comes in light of Kabul, Beijing, Moscow, and the Taliban having attempting to organize a grand meeting to establish a solution to the US occupation in Afghanistan.
“The idea [of a revision] was put forward by some Parliamentarians in the Chamber of Deputies on Monday and was approved by the majority of the parliamentarians by means of a vote on Wednesday,” 1TV channel reported.
This agreement allowed US military forces and bases to remain in Afghanistan after the US combat mission ended in 2014, the report said. However, security conditions continue to worsen as the number of civilians and security forces killed by terrorist attacks increases.
The report indicates that the current Afghan government continues to support the US presence as necessary to strengthen the country’s security forces.
Despite US claims that they will remain in Afghanistan to improve the country, Kathy Kelly, co-ordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence,said that American permanence has to do with Washington’s intention try to send a message to other countries in the region.
The US-led coalition in Afghanistan completed a combat mission in December 2014, marking the formal end of the longest war in American history. Even so, US troops remain in the country to supervise, train Afghan soldiers and provide military assistance whenever requested.
But the people of Afghanistan are not the ones who are benefiting from the United States, who act as a world police force, Kelly said on Tuesday.'
