Jihadi Leader Sebghatullah Mojaddedi called the Afghan-US strategic pact as a necessity to cut the neighbors hands off Afghanistan.

Mojaddedi who leads temporarily the Loya Jirga (Grand Assembly), said some neighboring countries interference makes Afghans to ally with the US.

The Traditional Loya Jirga is held to take the views of people’s representatives regarding the signing of strategic pact with the United States.

Afghans have different views in this regard. While a number of them think the pact is in their benefit, most of them call it as the document of Afghanistan‘s dependence to the US.
