“If corruption continues like this, be sure that the Bactrian treasure will not be safe,” said parliament speaker Mir Rahman Rahmani.
Rahmani emphasized that the government was responsible for the people and their representatives in the parliament that who transfers money to abroad.
He suggested that the Bactrian treasure should be transferred soon to a reliable country as safekeeping, arguing that the Central Bank of Afghanistan was not trustable.
