KABUL: Some lawmakers from the Wolesi Jirga — Afghanistan’s lower house of parliament, on Saturday criticised the slow-pace of work on the foreign policy principles (FPP) submitted to the house by the government and said adherence to clear foreign policy objectives was essential.

Speaker Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi said the FPP draft had reached the Wolesi Jirga and the Commission on International Relations had begun work on it, but he did not say when the draft landed in the house although he asked the commission concerned to distribute the draft’s copies promptly.

He called the FPP vital to maintaining relations with other countries. In recent years, public representatives have been asking the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to submit policy principles to the house for approval.
