S.Con.Res. 150 (is) Relating to the reestablishment of representative government in Afghanistan. [Introduced in Senate] ...
S. CON. RES. 150
Whereas Afghanistan has existed as a sovereign nation since 1747, maintaining
its independence, neutrality, and dignity;
Whereas Afghanistan had maintained its own decisionmaking through a traditional
process called a ``Loya Jirgah'', or Grand Assembly, by selecting,
respecting, and following the decisions of their leaders;
Whereas recently warlords, factional leaders, and foreign regimes have laid
siege to Afghanistan, leaving the landscape littered with landmines,
making the most fundamental activities dangerous;
Whereas in recent years, and especially since the Taliban came to power in 1996,
Afghanistan has become a haven for terrorist activity, has produced most
of the world's opium supply, and has become infamous for its human
rights abuses, particularly abuses against women and children;
Whereas the former King of Afghanistan, Mohammed Zahir Shah, ruled the country
peacefully for 40 years, and after years in exile retains his popularity
and support; and
Whereas former King Mohammed Zahir Shah plans to convene an emergency ``Loya
Jirgah'' to reestablish a stable government, with no desire to regain
power or reestablish a monarchy, and the Department of State supports
such ongoing efforts: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring),
That the United States--
(1) supports the democratic efforts that respect the human
and political rights of all ethnic and religious groups in
Afghanistan, including the effort to establish a ``Loya
Jirgah'' process that would lead to the people of Afghanistan
determining their own destiny through a democratic process and
free and fair elections; and
(2) supports the continuing efforts of former King Mohammed
Zahir Shah and other responsible parties searching for peace to
convene a Loya Jirgah--
(A) to reestablish a representative government in
Afghanistan that respects the rights of all ethnic
groups, including the right to govern their own affairs
through inclusive institution building and a democratic
(B) to bring freedom, peace, and stability to
(C) to end terrorist activities, illicit drug
production, and human rights abuses in Afghanistan.
Passed the Senate October 24 (legislative day, September
