A high-level delegation of US senators arrived in the capital Kabul on Tuesday, the Resolute Support (RS) Mission said.

The NATO mission tweeted the delegation was comprised of the head and members of the Senate Armed Services Committee. They will meet with US commanders.

Led by John McCain, chairman of the committee, includes influential senators. Before visiting Kabul, they travelled to Pakistan, where they met civil and military leaders.

The delegation jointly visited the South Waziristan tribal region with the Pakistani army chief, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, on Monday. The senators stressed Pakistan’s role in the stability of Afghanistan.

However, President Ashraf Ghani announced he did not want peace from Pakistan; instead he desire normalization with the neighbouring country.

The US senators are expected to meet President Ashraf Ghani, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dr. Abdullah Abdullah and a number of other Afghan officials.

The delegation’s visit to Kabul comes as the US is giving final touches to its new policy on Afghanistan, where the security situation has nosedived in recent months.
