A senior Afghan analyst blasted the US efforts to postpone the Loya Jirga (traditional grand assembly) elections in the country, and said Washington fears that the Afghan legislators voice opposition to the endorsement of a security pact between their country and the US. "The US is concerned that it cannot impose its aspirations on the Loya Jirga members and therefore it tries to postpone the Jirga elections to have more time for taking the preparatory steps in this regard," Head of Afghanistan's Research and Strategic Center Gholam Jilani Zowak told FNA. Noting that the US is aware of the Loya Jirga's opposition to Washington's demands and conditions for a security pact with Afghanistan, he said based on the information he could obtain, the US and Afghan governments have not yet reached a final decision on the strategic pact and have abundant differences over its content. The proposed agreement was jointly drafted over the course of many months by representatives of the US and Afghan governments. It is intended to update the current security agreement signed in 2005, and would outline the US military role in Afghanistan after 2014. While Afghan President Hamid Karzai has stressed that any agreement with the US should receive the approval of Loya Jirga first, many members of the former Loya Jirga have already voiced strong opposition to a strategic deal with the US. Earlier, a prominent Afghan analyst and politician had unveiled that the draft strategic agreement between Washington and Kabul allows the US to use Afghan soil for extraterritorial missions, and stressed that the deal doesn't serve the interests of Afghanistan. "The draft includes capitulations and US operation outside Afghan borders," Seyfoldin Seyhoon, a member of Afghanistan's National United Front, told FNA in Kabul. "Issues such as capitulation, US forces' freedom of action, detention of Afghan nationals and US troops' extraterritorial missions for chasing enemy combatants are among the US demands allowed by the draft agreement, "and the Afghan government has no right to prevent the aforementioned," Seyhoon added. Meantime, Iran has repeatedly warned against possible plans for the establishment of permanent US military bases in Afghanistan, stressing that the bases would be a source of permanent insecurity from Iran's neighbor.
