During the meeting, the two sides spoke about the new National Anti-Corruption Strategy, the negative consequences of corruption and effective ways to combat this phenomenon. Other issues such as: The Committee’s reports to Afghanistan, the roots and corruption factors in the offices, and effective ways to implement strategic plans for the achievement and satisfaction of the international partners of Afghanistan in the serious fight against corruption in Afghanistan.
