Text of security pact with US released
KABUL (PAN): The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has released the text of the Bilateral Security Agreement between Afghanistan and the United States, which is being placed before the Loya Jirga for approval today.
The 22-page text, available in Pashto, Dari and English languages, says US troops in post-2014 Afghanistan will have immunity -- a proposition that the Afghan government had previously opposed.
The text is going to be placed before a four-day Loya Jirga that convenes in Kabul today. Around 2,500 public representatives, tribal elders, MPs and civil society representatives invited to the event will share their views with the government on the pact.
