Afghan President Hamid Karzai has met with members of the Monitoring Evaluation Committee whose job it is to monitor corruption in carrying out projects funded by the international community.

The committee, which also is responsible for the development of clear and objective benchmarks in fighting corruption, briefed the president on its findings.

Mr. Karzai reminded the committee members “it is their responsibility to evaluate the international assistance in Afghanistan and bring transparency.”

He urged the members to continue working in close coordination with other relevant anti-corruption agencies, including the High Office of Oversight. That office coordinates and monitors the implementation of the Anti-Corruption Strategy needed for administrative procedural reform in the country.
