The BSA was signed after the approval of the country’s grand traditional Loya Jirga and questioning the treaty by those who couldn’t reach their personal and political targets, would never help the situation improve. The CE rejected if those opposing the past, were representing the people and those who ask for reviewing the past are those their personal and political targets were not accepted,” said Dr. Abdullah. He added that terrorist groups have pretexted presence of foreign forces in Afghanistan, while Al-Qaeda has security hideouts, before foreign forces and launched terrorist attacks against the people of Afghanistan and the world. “The current situation of the country requires discussions to be held with the international community, on the terrorist hideouts and to supporting the security forces,” said CE.
