Government should not let US privatise the Afghanistan war: Senate

The Afghan Senate has responded sharply to the privatisation of the war in Afghanistan and the handover of the Afghan war to the Blackwater Private Military Company.

The head of the Blackwater Company recently announced that the United States intends to hand over the Afghan war to the private company, but Senate members are worried about the plan, saying that the government should prevent the decision of the United States.

Senate members who spoke on Sunday at a meeting stressed that if the Afghan war mission is to be handed over to Blackwater private company, it means that the United States has failed in Afghanistan.

Afghan Senate officials while accusing Blackwater company of intimidation and criminality, said that the decision is against the will of the Afghan people.

At the end of the meeting, Senate Speaker Fazl Hadi Muslimyar said that the United States should respect the will of the Afghan people and refrain from passing the war to the private company.

Blackwater had previously advised the United States President, Donald Tramp, to hand over the responsibility of the Afghan war to them, but the proposition was rejected by the President of the United States.
