Kabul (BNA) The Red Crescent Week is an opportunity to honor and express gratitude for the services carrying out by this credible charity organization and renews our commitments for serving the needy people.
BNA social affairs commenting on the issue writes the last decade of October is celebrated as a special week of Red Crescent.
The aim of celebrating the special week of Red Crescent is to assess and express gratitude for the humanitarian activities of Afghan Red Crescent in one hand and on other hand provide the ground for designing practical plans and programs for helping the needy people. 
Also, special week of Red Crescent instigates the humanitarian feelings of generous rich people and charity organizations to perform their moral and religious obligations before the victims of war and natural incidents by offering physical and spiritual aids and meet their moral and religious obligations.
Our people view charity organizations such as Red Crescent and Red Cross and other similar organs as effective and useful organs that provide timely assistances for needy people in critical times.  Because, these humanitarian organizations in most critical situation away from all political affiliations just think about serving their fellowmen. 
Unfortunately, terrorist groups and cliques constantly have tried to prevent the activities of these humanitarian organizations.
The catastrophic terrorist attacks on offices of Red Cross within the last two years made that impartial and independent organization to reduce its activities in Afghanistan, while the war suffering Afghan people are in need of cooperation and aids of this global organization.
In addition, terrorist groups creating barriers on the way of activities of this impartial and humanitarian organ prevent it from extending humanitarian aids to the most vulnerable people of Afghanistan.
Special Week of Red Crescent besides being an opportunity to reach and remove the problems of needy people can be used as an opportunity for supporting charity organizations. In order to implement this goal in practice, all means like pulpits of the mosques, media, dignitaries, politicians and people in general join hand to support charity organizations that without any discriminations provide aids to the most vulnerable people and respect and honor their impartial  aids and services.

Kabul (BNA) TAPI is the abbreviation for a gas transmission pipeline that starts from Turkmenistan, passes through Afghanistan and Pakistan and reaches to India. This project can bring good economic opportunities and regional stability.
Practical work of this project starts at a time that Afghanistan has been at close quarters with big security and economic challenges. The Afghan government considers this vital project as an important step for improving of Afghanistan economic situation and concerned countries.
In opinion of economists, implementation of TAPI project is very essential for economic self-sufficiency of Afghanistan and relaxing of its financial dependence to other countries.
Lawmaker Ghulam Farouq Majrooh from Herat said, importance of implementation of TAPI project is very high for Afghanistan as it connects central Asia to South Asia. Pakistan needs would cause her not to sabotage this project. I hope this project would be completed.
Majrooh added, despite of ongoing insecurity, if the concerned countries sincerely join hands, this project would succeed. Therefore in the first step, security should be restored in those areas through which the pipeline is expected to be passed. He went on to say that, if economic-commercial relations among regional countries expand, and the idea of connection of south to central Asia is materialized through Afghanistan, most likely, these countries would put aside intelligence-security intentions and would arrange their relations based on mutual economic interest. Saifuddin Saihoon a lecturer of the Faculty of Economy, Kabul University said, TAPI project is implementation of Afghanistan economic dreams and paves the way for regional stability but its implementation requires reliable security and sincere regional cooperation.
Saihoon added, Afghanistan can play role of trade-transit Bridge between central and south Asian countries and paves the way for regional economic development. But this opportunity is currently threatened by security challenges. We want to create confidence in the region.
Jawed Kohistani a political commentator said, despite of its possible huge income to concerned countries, TAPI project is challenged by extremist terrorists, but this project could be an opportunity for improving of security in the region and its hope that supporters of terrorism would change political mind and prefer economic interests.
