Afghan senate chairmanAfghan senate urged United States to assist Afghanistan in removing Pakistani military check posts created in Goshta district of eastern Nangarhar province.

Chairman of the Afghan senate said Washington’s demand to keep military bases in Afghanistan beyond 2014 will not be accepted unless United States does not act in accordance with the national benefits of Afghanistan.

This comes as Afghan president Hamid Karzai on Thursday said that Washington wants to keep nine military bases across the country after NATO combat roops leave Afghanistan in 2014.

Fazal-ul-Hadi Muslimyar, chairman of the Afghan senate house told reporters that US and NATO troops have handed over military check posts to Pakistani military in Goshta district.

Local residents in Goshta district quoted by Fazal-ul-Hadi Muslimyar have said that Pakistani troops have moved 40km inside the Afghan soil after NATO and US troops handed over military check posts in Goshta district.

Chairman of the Afghan senate house last week also visited eastern Nangarhar province to inspect border issues in Goshta district and recent demonstrations against the provincial governor of Nangarhar.

According to Afghan officials, Pakistani military forces have carried out attacks on Afghan security forces for two times after the military check posts and installations were handed over to them.
