    Leader of Rah-e-Nejat Afghanistan (Ways to Save Afghanistan) political movement Seyed Akbar Agha said that the US-Afghan bilateral security agreement virtually granted the United States exemption from the laws imposed by Afghanistan on its soil, which endangered the Afghans.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The international justice system is under the influence of the United States and is reluctant to make the decisions that would help Afghanistan, leader of Rah-e-Nejat Afghanistan (Ways to Save Afghanistan) political movement Seyed Akbar Agha told Sputnik on Friday.

    "The international justice system is under the influence of the United States and is passive about making fair decisions to solve the most important problems in our country [Afghanistan]," Agha said.

    Agha added that the US-Afghan bilateral security agreement virtually granted the United States exemption from the laws imposed by Afghanistan on its soil, which endangered the Afghans.

    The Strategic Partnership Agreement between Afghanistan and the United States entered into force in 2012, which held provisions on the possibility for the United States to keep troops in Afghanistan without specifications of their number, the US commitment to support Afghanistan's social and economic development and Afghan government's pledge to improve transparency and help protect human rights.

    The Afghan government forces are currently fighting the continuing Taliban insurgency. The situation in Afghanistan has been unstable since the 2001 US-led invasion aimed at defeating the Taliban and al-Qaeda in the wake of the 9/11 attacks in the United States.
