Afghanistan Counterterrorism, Oversight, and Accountability Act

Afghanistan Counterterrorism, Oversight, and Accountability Act was introduced in the US Senate to impose sanctions on Afghan Taliban and the foreign entities that are supporting the extremist group. The legislation aims to address the fallout of the chaotic US withdrawal from the war-ravaged Afghanistan.
The provisions of bill call for the establishment of a state department task force, counterterrorism strategy for Afghanistan and reviewing of foreign assistance to countries supporting the Taliban. If the proposed bill becomes a law, the US President will have the power to impose sanctions on individuals supporting the Taliban.
