Upper House of Parliament Summons Senior Security Officials

Following the escalation of insecurity and targeted killings in the country, Afghan senators summoned security officials to the Senate on Tuesday for accountability.

Senators say most of the remote parts of the country are now insecure, and the people are suffering casualties on highways.

“An ordinary government employee cannot cross the highways,” said Senator Nabih Mostafa Zadeh.

A number of other senators accused the Taliban of lacking the will for peace.

“We call on the opposition not to burn down other schools and not to inflict this great persecution on our people,” said Sen. Anarkalay Honaryar.

This comes as an important Afghan peace summit is scheduled to take place in Turkey next month.
