Kabul (BNA) October 27 is the international day of preserving audio- visual heritages and Afghanistan for having an old civilization and valuable prescriptions gives special importance to the day.
BNA cultural affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes October 27th is the international day for preserving of the world audio – visual heritages. The day is of great importance for Afghanistan, because the country has experienced many civilizations and nurtured great cultural people in her bosom.
Since protecting and safeguarding such historical and ancient heritages are now at the focus attentions, it would be necessary for relevant authorities and entire Afghan people to deeply think deeply about the proper way of protecting those invaluable heritages. Because, just honoring and being prideful for having an ancient culture and glorious history would not be sufficient. If we know ourselves the real owners of this ancient civilization, we should have a strong will and practical program for protecting these national values.
If we look precisely at our spiritual properties, Afghan National Archive is one of the richest archives in the region. Although, Afghan National Archive has experienced a grave situation, fortunately it has kept its spiritual values. In spite of that our pictorial archive is not an old archive, but it is rich and represents our ancient and glorious history.
The important thing is this, although the existence of such archives, or audio – visual and calligraphy heritages are a matter of pride, but compassion and precise planning for preserving the cultural heritages would be a matter of great pride, therefore it would be the urgent obligation and duty of relevant authorities to take effective and practical measures for safeguarding the heritages and spare no any efforts in that regard.

Kabul (BNA) There were many similarities in recent incidents in the country. This clearly indicates that those bloody terrorist incidents were originated and organized from the same source.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes during the last six days military training centers and security bases in different parts of the country were the targets of terrorist attacks. Surprisingly, there were similarities in techniques and means used in the attacks, without doubt the attacks have been designed and managed from a same source.
The incidents took place in a time, Afghan security forces in fight against terrorism in Ander district, Ghazni province confronted with Pakistani Army troops and commandoes where 15 Pakistani commandoes were killed and five others injured. Also, Abo Taher Bajauly a Pakistani citizen along with his nine men were killed in an air operation of Afghan air forces in Mohmand Dara district, Nangarhar province. The presence of Pakistani national alongside Taliban and IS in Afghanistan is a clear proof that Pakistan as before is involved in fueling war in Afghanistan and would not be ready to desist its evil action easily. Pakistan interference and presence of its troops in Afghan war and fighting alongside terrorist groups is not a new thing, and not only their presence has proved in Ander district, Ghazni province and Achin district, Nangarhar province.
Local people and security authorities in Kunduz province also have said that they have seen men in masks and black clothes alongside Taliban in Imam Sahib District and other parts of the province who talk to anybody and even serve their meal away from their Afghan colleagues. Without doubt these masked men in black clothed are Pakistanis in disguise of Taliban and IS have invaded Afghanistan and destroying our homeland. Military experts serious believe that carrying attack such as the recent terrorist attacks using all military means without Pakistani intelligence service cooperation were impossible, because the weapons and explosives used in the attacks were only owned by Pakistan and its army.
Without doubt the security and defense authorities in National Security Council better know about who really were behind those barbaric terrorist incidents. Therefore, the people expect the authorities to awake the dormant and think about mobilizing people against Pakistani invasion. In addition, the message of Afghan people to world community, US and European Union and the countries that have signed security agreement with Afghanistan perform their obligations according the agreement and implement them in practice.

Kabul (BNA) The escalation of terrorist activities in the country made it an urgent need to renew and further improve the programs and strategy on security and pay serous attention for settling certain problems of intelligence and security organs.
BNA military affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes during the last five days Kabul and several provinces were the scene of unprecedented terrorist attacks. The terrorists carrying terrorist and suicide attacks on Kabul, Ghazni, Paktia, Ghor, Kandahar, Farha, Urozgan and other parts of the country have killed a great number of our compatriots including men, women and children. Taliban and IS notorious groups claimed responsibility of those barbaric and inhumane attacks.
What have happened during the last days is coincident with new political development in the region and the country. During the period, quadripartite for starting peace negations held, Kabul hosted the Mayors of countries located along Silk Road and armed oppositions were defeated in battle fields. Therefore, terrorists for showing their existence resort a series of terrorist attacks which led human casualties and heavy destructions. Political elites and military experts terrorist groups carrying the recent attacks have tries to introduce themselves as an effective group in political process on the country in one hand and on other hand became the focus of media.
Somewhat Taliban achieved their evil objectives. They showed the vulnerability and mismanagement among security and intelligence organs of the country to the relevant organs of the country.
But, what will be the consequences of the attacks?
Military experts believe in recent attacks, there are many similarities. The attackers have used the same techniques and the attacks were designed and monitored and launched by the same source. Therefore, the recognition of the perpetrators of these barbaric attacks would be not so difficult for cognizance forces of our country. Therefore the relevant organs should take serious and effective steps toward recognition of the criminals otherwise, our security and intelligence forces and finally the government will lose their credibility among the public.
It is a clear fact that after the recent attacks Taliban achieved their propaganda goals, but in same time the sympathy and support of people from security forces increased. In addition showing sympathy and support of people would be a warning for the state because the people would not forget the heavy casualties among military forces, if the situation continues in this manner, it would be difficult encourage their sons to join security and defense forces of the country, while the honor and independence of the country depend to those forces. Political elites and military experts believe it would be the urgent need of the state to remove the numerous challenges of security and defense forces of the country. First of all military strategy should be renewed, bring reform in security and intelligence organs and appointment should be according to law and profession. Since we know the sensitivities of the situation, then we should establish a precise and practical strategy and go to the war against terrorism, otherwise terrorist attack like recent attacks will increase.

Kabul (BNA) European Union in its last session announced its strategy on Afghanistan and once again the member countries of the union confirmed their support from Afghan people and government.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes European Union that it’s most member countries has military presence in Afghanistan and is the closest ally of US in counter – terrorism struggle has recently announced its strategy on Afghanistan.
The foreign ministers of the Union in their recent session calling the situation in Afghanistan fragile, renewed their commitments on the country aiming restoring stability, strengthening peace process in to the interest of the region and the world, enforcement of law and public rule in the country, providing the ground for good governance, improving the role of Afghan women in the community, settling the refugees problem and economic growth of Afghanistan. These were the major part of European Union’s strategy on Afghanistan.
The Afghan authorities and politicians consider the announcement of European’s strategy as a sign of continuation of world support from Afghan people and government and called the European Union a powerful and confidential friend of Afghanistan in world arena.
Afghan people welcoming the good well of world community and European Union insist that the strategies of friendly countries and world powerful organizations on Afghanistan should be effective and constructive and practically be useful in restoring peace and stability in the country.
In addition, it would require the countries and organizations practically assist Afghanistan in building capacity in security, economic and good governance fields and pay serious attention on improvement of security, economic social and good governance fields. The most essential way for settling Afghan problem and restoring stability in the region is supporting Afghan security and defense forces, because they better know about the situation and geography of their country and can operate successfully therefore, it would be reasonable to invest on them. Meanwhile the Afghan people expect the friendly countries and international organizations focus on funding and equipping centers of terrorists located outside Afghan territories in order to eliminate the terrorists’ strongholds and hideouts to save the lives of Afghan innocent citizens and the lives of the national of other countries fighting against terrorism.
Also, the Afghans wish the programs and strategies on Afghanistan should be effective and practical that lead to peace and stability in Afghanistan and in the region not to proxy war and rivalry of outsiders in Afghanistan.
The most important thing in this situation is that all countries around the world know that a peaceful and secure Afghanistan is in to the benefit of the region and the world.
Therefore, we expect the European to perform its duties and obligation to achieve that humane and noble aim.
