Bilateral Security Agreement Us Afghanistan

The United States and Afghanistan reached an agreement on the final language of the bilateral security agreement,[72] which, according to Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jen Psaki, was not the final document and which U.S. officials still verified on November 20, 2013. [73] [74] [75] [76] [77] In a letter from US President Obama,[78] it is stated that US forces would be “in training, advising and supporting” the Afghan armed forces “in targeted action.” The Employment and Employment Committee of the Employment, Justice and Employment Committee [79] There is no limit to how long U.S. forces would remain in Afghanistan[74] The agreement also has no expiry date. [80] The agreement states that if U.S. forces are not agreed upon, they cannot conduct combat operations in Afghanistan. It states that the parties “intend to protect the national interests of the United States and Afghanistan without U.S. military counterterrorism operations,” but does not explicitly prohibit such operations. [74] U.S.

special forces will continue to have room for counter-terrorism raids in private Afghan homes[75] U.S. counterterrorism operations should “complement and support” Afghan missions[75] and that U.S. forces will not conduct military operations in Afghanistan “unless agreed,” the text states. [81] He stresses that Afghan forces are in the lead and that all U.S. military operations are conducted “with full respect for Afghan sovereignty and full respect for the security of the Afghan people, including at home.” [75] [76] He also notes that “U.S. forces must not target Afghan civilians, even at home, in accordance with Afghan law and the rules of engagement of U.S. forces. [74] U.S. President Barack Obama wrote in a letter to his Afghan counterpart: “U.S.

forces must not enter Afghan homes for military purposes, except in exceptional circumstances that pose an urgent danger to the lives and lives of American citizens. We will continue to do everything in our power to respect the sanctity and dignity of Afghans in their homes and in their daily lives, as we do for our own citizens. [82] The United States should recognize that the concerns expressed by ministers have long been expressed by Afghans and international organizations. Therefore, as it prepares to enter the seventeenth year of the war in Afghanistan, it must review measures that would affect its popularity with the country`s citizens and politicians. In particular, this means that the United States, in close cooperation with the Afghan government, should strive to overcome the obstacles that prevent Afghan forces from becoming an effective force. This means directly addressing the problem of corruption: a September 2017 SIGAR report showed a number of important information about the US experience in the development of ANDSF, including a lesson that “ANDSF`s monitoring and evaluation tools were largely based on tangible results… This focus has obscured intangible factors such as corruption and the will to fight, which have profoundly influenced the results of security.┬áTo combat corruption, U.S. and NATO supporters can encourage lower- and middle-level ANDSF officers to be transparent about the activities of senior officers. Second, there is also a need for the United States to step up the collection and coordination of secret services in Afghanistan, particularly within the National Directorate of Security (NDS), as intelligence flaws have made the ANDSF and the civilian population even more vulnerable to insurgent attacks.
