Osama's death identifies his network location: Muslimyar
KABUL(PAN): The killing of Osama Bin Laden has exposed the world the whereabouts of his network, the Senate chairman said on Thursday, calling on foreign soldiers to conduct their operations across the Afghan border into Pakistan.
"If neighbouring countries stop providing safe havens and equipment to terrorists, then there is no problem in Afghanistan, where peace will return quickly," Fazal Hadi Muslimyar, told Pajhwok Afghan News during an interview.
Instead of launching operations, foreign soldiers should focus on training their Afghan counterparts to enable them to protect the country's borders, he said.
"The neighbouring countries can play a very positive role in bringing peace and stability to Afghanistan," he said, insisting the Meshrano Jirga was a staunch supporter of the peace process.
He brushed aside the rumours that the upper house had been pro-government: "We have been voted by people and we are answerable to them," he said.
He said it was very important for both the legislature and the presidency to work jointly toward ending the conflict. He said since both the Meshrano Jirga and the government had respect for the constitution, their relations had improved.
