Kabul (BNA) The recent incidents in Helmand and Kabul indicate that Taliban are lack of human conception and inhabited with ignorance and counter cultural and humane dealings. 
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes, in the first day of New Year Taliban targeted celebrators of the New Year in Karta- I – Sakhi, Kabul city and killed and wounded a number of people. Two days after this inhumane incident, Taliban committed another crime, attacking on participants of farmer festival in Helmand province martyred four and wounded a number.
In both horrible incidents, there were civilians who were targeted by Taliban.
This is not the first time that Taliban showing their anti-cultural and inhumane character take the lives of civilians. In the past they have also targeted civilians in cultural, social and religious gatherings killed many innocent people including women and children. The people have painful memories from Taliban who attacking burial ceremonies, support locations, schools and seminaries killed our people. Everybody knows that Taliban have never hidden their crimes but honored for such cruelties.  This barbaric group is been established for slaughtering people. They are fighting against our people, our culture and even our religion. They believe that they can only impose their selves via creating terror and violence and introduce as an effective and powerful party to the people.
Creating Violence and barbarity is a part of the obligation of group. They fear from conducting knowledgeable, cultural and ethical people, they are ignorant backward people who cannot afford the happiness of people.
Taliban have been established for creating division among ethnic groups, followers of religious sects and destruction of our country. For achieving this barbaric aim they target gymnasiums, mosques, cultural and social ceremonies the same, everywhere and everyone is their military targets.
Taliban do not believe a civic life, they use every opportunity to prevent the people’s attendance in civic, cultural and construction activities. Helmand and Kabul’s incidents are emaciated from such view and way of thinking.
Taliban have been made ignorant and cruel, to obtain privileges for their master (Pakistan) in current talks on Afghan problem and boast the status of that country in regional games.

Kabul (BNA) 1397 ended with all its problems and the New Year stated with new hopes and great aspirations.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes 1398 ended and the Afghan people celebrating the New Year with great hopes.
The New Year has been started with new hopes and various programs of the state, one of the most vital of which is ensuring peace via carrying effective and constructive peace negotiations with armed oppositions.
Although the hard situation in 1397 has a dark message for the future and transferring the ominous heritage of continuation of war is the most horrible one but the people still hope the New Year would be the end of hostilities and war in the country and the start of a peaceful and happy life for our suffering people across the country.  They have introduced the New Year as opening a new chapter in political life of the country and strengthening the system.
Meanwhile, presidential elections would be held in New Year, which can improve the political trust and confidence in the country and further strengthen the role of people in ruling the country.  Beside these programs our international friends have made commitments to root out the factors of war in the country and curb the countries that support terrorism that we can already see some part of the commitments have put in practice.
Although the programs of the state and internal friends for restoring peace and stability in the country are various and extensive, the commitments of state authorities indicate that the horrible terroristic incidents won’t be repeated in Kabul and other cities by terrorist groups and they cannot impose themselves to our people  by force and creating horror and violence. The people hope the armed oppositions to start the New Year as the people expect and spare no any effort for settling via conducting political peace talks
Also the people expect the authorities of government besides focusing their attention for ensuring security situation, should try to fulfill commitments for improving the people’s lives.
1397 in addition of having serious security problems, poverty and other social violence seriously suffered our people.  The people hope the New Year be the end of all problem and violence that our people have experienced last year.

Kabul (BNA) 1397 Afghan solar calendar year with all its ups and downs passed and the Afghan people are looking forward with great hopes looks and welcoming the New Year.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes 1397 ended with having some problems and great achievements. Afghan people experiencing severe problems conducted parliamentary elections last year and provided the ground for establishing a new parliament. The policy and the viewpoints of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan on forming a regional and beyond regional gathering on Afghan issue realized and the voice for ensuring security, political sessions in presence and non – presence of state representatives inside or outside of the country held and there is commitment for continuing the process. Without doubt the current opportunities are a part of state’s programs and comments for forming an opportunity for conducting a national and international gathering on Afghan issue.
Afghanistan during the last year succeeded to save itself from commercial monopolies and transit through only the soil of one country, air corridors increased and for assessing alternative transit roads fundamental works performed. There are also great achievements in education, higher education, economic and cultural areas. In spite of those achievements, 1297 was a challenging year from security point of view. During the year the conflicts became more serious, because armed groups tried hard via conducting military provocations find a proper place on political ground. But this conception and poor view point took the lives of a great number of Afghan youths from the both sides of the conflict and achieving peace and security remained as a hope for the New Year.   
Now, 1397 has passed. The people hope with coming the new Afghan solar calendar year their hopes for ensuring peace and security realized.
Fear from continuation of war depends mostly in to violent activities of armed groups. However, forming regional gatherings and the process of peace negotiations are improving which we strongly believe that would finally lead to ensuring peace and security in the country.
We start and celebrate the New Year with great hopes. During the coming year presidential elections would be held, the new parliament will start its work, without doubt the peace negotiation process will improve and it would be followed by Afghans as their own national issue.
On other areas of life also have made great activities, Afghan government has made new commitments for ensuring peace in the country. We hope armed opposition groups also make commitments for maintain peaceful coexistence and practically work with their people for ensuring peace and security in their country, because Just commitment and promise for ensuring peace is not enough, practical work is needed. Therefore, the ground should be provided for implementing the commitments and people’s demands in practice already made.

Kabul (BNA) Threat of terrorism is the mean reason for the presence of international coalition forces in Afghanistan and the withdrawal of those forces should be done after precise study and evaluation of situation.
BNA military affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes recently Zalmay Khalilzad US special envoy for Afghanistan has lately pointed out, “We the international coalition have come to Afghanistan to fight terrorism. If there would be a need we leave this country, if Taliban want to negotiate, we also want to talk with them to ensure peace and if they want to continue fighting we fight against them,”
Khalilzad showing reaction to the recent developments has expressed the above statements.
A number of Afghan politicians and the international supporters of this country claim that the process of negotiation between US and Taliban is vague, Americans, Taliban and their friends and supporters are aware from the process but Afghan government knows nothing about the process. That is in reality ignoring the Afghans’ rights.  
According to Afghans, point of view holding negotiations a reasonable way for overcoming the problems and everybody prefers it, but when the issue such as counter terrorism struggle and the pullout of foreign forces and in general the issue of peace and war presented, Afghan people have the right to know about the process of peace and its developments and if the issue of withdrawal of foreign forces come the field, the international coalition forces should respond with high responsibility.
Whether the threats existed 18 years ago removed or still remained as before? Whether the international coalitions have reached their objectives this is curbing Taliban in Afghanistan and in the region?
From Afghans view point the current situation is more dangerous than before and our people have sacrificed in struggle against terrorism than any other countries of the world.
If earlier to 18 years ago, there were talking about Al Qaeda activities, today IS, Taliban, Buko Harm, narcotic drugs mafia and other extremist parties have emerged in Pakistan, central Asian countries and other countries. If earlier to 18 years ago, the people were talking about struggling about a certain group of terrorism, but today the people have to fight against several terrorist groups. When certain people talking about the massive withdrawal of coalition forces from the country, do they the authorities of those force know about the current situation and are they ready for leaving the country?
The issue pullout of foreign forces from Afghanistan is raised in a time, western and American newspapers and American authorities have repeatedly said that they can’t trust Taliban because the group is under the influence of extremist groups of the region.
Our people insist on withdrawal of coalition forces from country with considering their responsibilities. Therefore, one who accepts responsibility should not say the words that increase the moral of oppositions and terrorist groups. It would be better for Afghans and Americans to honor the soul of their sons who have lost their lives in battle against terrorism.
