US lawmakers seek transparency in Afghan peace deal with Taliban

AIR PIC
An influential group of three lawmakers has sought assurance from the Trump administration that it will make available to the Congress the full text of any agreement signed with the Taliban.

In a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the three Congressmen also sought assurances that any deal signed would verifiably require the Taliban to break ties with all its terrorist allies, including in Pakistan, and that withdrawal of US troops will be conditioned on an agreement between the Afghan government and the Taliban.

In the letter, the Congressmen -- Tom Malinowski, Mike Gallagher and Brad Sherman -- asked for a written commitment that there will be no secret understandings or annexes with the Taliban that will not be shared with the Congress.

Mr Malinowski said, it's time for the administration to talk to the Congress, not just to the Taliban, about the future of Afghanistan. He said, we need to make sure that any withdrawal of US forces does not come at the cost of everything they fought for.

In their letter, the three lawmakers asked whether the Taliban's commitment to break with international terrorists also extend to Taliban activities in Pakistan.
