BNA military affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes US defense ministry has announced that for strengthening its military presence in Afghanistan sends more people with new military equipment including drone airplanes. US taking measures for dispatching more people as advisors to Afghanistan in a time, that country are facing new security threats and the destructive activities of terrorists and extremists groups have emerged as a major challenge for stability of Afghanistan and in the region. In addition regional rivalries in Afghanistan have changed Afghanistan in to a dangerous country in the region. At peak of such developments Pentagon decided to crease its forces in Afghanistan, while US within the frame of Resolute Mission led by NATO has the highest number of troops in the country. Afghan people welcome the useful presence of foreign countries in their country but insist that the presence should have a clear and constructive definition. Afghanistan has been the scene of foreign countries military presence for 16 years. The military alliance of international forces leads by US came to Afghanistan to fight terrorism but unfortunately still the crisis in the country and terrorists are active and Afghan people are the main victims of this long-lasting imposed war. Afghan people insist on constructive military presence of foreign countries to lead to peace and elimination of terrorism and extremism.

Afghans complaint that the foreign countries instead of launching a true war against terrorist and extremist groups, they have launched a proxy war here to achieve their own interests. Some Afghan people believe US is seeking to achieve its own interests not restoring peace and stability in Afghanistan. They say, US has recently decided to increase its forces and military equipment in Afghanistan, then why did announce the end of war in 2014 and withdrew its thousands of troops and military equipment from Afghanistan? Wasn’t that a decision in hurry?

Kabul (BNA) President Ghani insisted that our goal is establishing a persistent peace and stability in the country, stability and security cannot be ensured by the bullet but by trusting police.
BNA military affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes Mohammad Ashraf Ghani president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan recently in tenth graduation of National police Academy students addressing relevant police personnel and officers said that police forces should strongly rely on constitution contents and the president does not trust his safety to any tribe or party but trusts to security and defense forces of the country.
The President in his speech pointing out in to old formation of police said that our aim is restoration of stability, but it is an open fact that we cannot achieve this goal by using bullet, but through trusting police we can reach this urgent aim. The president also talking on reforming in security organs and appointments in ministry of interior based on police law openly addressing members of parliament said that members of parliament should not go the ministries for appointments of individuals, if they do so, their act will recorded and release via TVs.
The words used by the president clearly indicate that he is serious in bringing reforms in security and defense organs,  in addition the participation of president in such a ceremony demonstrate that he supports police forces. While police in carrying out their jobs and obligation are facing many challenges and the challenges can be settled only via political wisdom and creative work.
Police while its major responsibility is enforcing law and should protect the social safety of citizens, they also carry out military operations which keep them away from their essential duties. Today police forces are facing many problems.
Although during the last 16 years certain advancements have been made in police organs of the country but they are not sufficient. Therefore it would be advisable the barriers that prevent police to carry out their duties should be removed as soon as possible.
Once president Ghani had called ministry of interior the most corrupted organ in the country, therefore, the current situation asks the leadership of that ministry to do a lot of work in order to overcome the problems, the ministry suffering.
As we mentioned earlier the Police essential duty is ensuring security, enforcement of laws, serious struggle against who breach the law and disrupt security and social order, ensure social security and remove the insecurities, but unfortunately they failed to do so.
Therefore, in order to build a competent police force to successfully overcome the current problem there is an urgent need for preparing a practical program to meet the current needs of police and perform their essential duties and obligations.
Today, police in the community suffering from mistrusts, therefore, the process of professionalization of police, building their capacity and anti-corruption straggle should be supported and take effective steps toward attracting public trust to police and implement police code precisely in practice. In this way, psychological security in the community will further improve and people trust police. This would be a great achievement for police and security forces as a whole.

Kabul (BNA) Presence of terrorist groups including Taliban and ISIS in Pakistan is an irrefutable fact, nowise can’t reject and deny it. 
BNA analyst commenting on the issue writes, presence of leaders of terrorist groups in Pakistan is a clear fact, but unfortunately some religious scholars and politicians said, leaders of Taliban terrorist group are living in Afghanistan not in Pakistan, such declaration annoying Afghan citizens who sustained harms following terrorist activities carried out by Taliban militants in Afghanistan.
If, today a religious scholar or politician claimed that leaders of Taliban terrorist group are living in Afghanistan, therefore where is located Quetta Council or Peshawar Council that leading Taliban terrorist group?  Are these councils located in geographic of Afghanistan or in Pakistan?
If the politician or religious scholar claimed that leaders of Taliban are living in Afghanistan, so where was killed Taliban ex-leader Mullah Omar? Mullah Akhtar Mansour by passport of which country went to Iran from Pakistan and where he was killed, while he returning?
On the other hand, there is not only Afghan government, political experts and people of Afghanistan who are claiming that leaders of Terrorist groups are living in Pakistan, why Donald Trump president of America cut off aids to Pakistan? The main cause of the movement was existence of terrorists’ hideouts in Pakistan.
Recently intelligences services of Saudi and Qatar had announced that they assisted financially and logistically with Taliban terrorist group at the request of authorities and military officials of Pakistan.
If religious scholar and politician talking about presence of Taliban leaders in Afghanistan, but why do not they reveal Mullah Haibatullah’s address and place of living in Afghanistan, so it is clear and a fact that Mullah Haibatullah is living in Pakistan and ISI change his place of living and his family, it is not an Afghan opinion, because Pakistani intelligence authorities already have confessed to that.  
If religious scholar and politician talking about presence of Taliban leaders in Afghanistan, why a member of Pakistan intelligence in a court in Lahor city complained and explicitly stated that military intelligence of Pakistan supporting activities of terrorist groups in Afghanistan, India and Uzbekistan.
If religious scholar and politician talking about presence of Taliban leaders in Afghanistan, why place of living and activities of Sarajuddin Haqqani leader of Haqqani Network has been controversial for Pakistan, although Afghanistan, America and western countries by having evidences have been consolidated presence of Sarajuddin Haqqani in Pakistan.  
There is a lot of reasons indicate that leaders of Taliban are living in Pakistan not in Afghanistan, therefore, should not express incorrectly statements, by untruthful declaration affects people of Afghanistan and make happy enemies of the country.
Politician who talking about patriotism and claiming his people stability must be cautious and responsible in his speeches, shouldn’t talk against national interest, by expressing such viewpoint they will lose his/her popularity among people.

Kabul (BNA) Parliament of a country is the center for closeness of the nation and the will of people and this is the members of parliament who give  identity  to the nation , and introduce  the realities to society, therefore it should not let this national organ become the source of discords and  prove king prejudice among people.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes recently there were unpleasant stories inside the parliament and some members the house have taken hostage the national budget of financial year of 1307 and insist on increasing the financial privileges of members of parliament. Worse than that recently a number our people’s representatives instead of settling the current problems of the country and rescuing people from current threatening crisis, they are trying to fan the ethnical, lingual and factional discrimination and practically trying to create discord among the people. 
If we look deeply at current developments in the country, the enemies of Afghanistan for achieving their illegal and ambitious objectives have used all methods fortunately failed. Now those chronic enemies are playing their last card that is creating discord and prejudices among our people to achieve their hideous goals. If we do not wisely and consciously react to this horrible conspiracy   it would be more fatal and disastrous to our people and homeland.
In this critical situation which asks us to work wisely to foil the baneful conspiracies of enemies, there are rumors that some members of parliament have taken the draft of the budget of 1397 in to hostage and asking for increasing of their financial rights.
In addition to above issues, some people’s representatives affiliated to certain political groups trying preferring certain ethnical group  fan ethnical, linguistic and factional prejudices.  They attack the national figures and heroes of the country who stood firmly to acquire the independence of the country and resisted against the invasion of foreign enemies. Without doubt they mitigate the status and credibility of national assembly by stating such baseless and scurrilous words.
While these outstanding figures belong to the entire Afghan nation and their prideful works depend to   all Afghans without exception.
One should keep in mind honoring such personalities in deed is respecting the identity of the country and Afghan nation as a whole.
Our people expect the members of parliament who themselves make the laws not violate the law or ignoring the law propagate hatred and hostility among people.
The people insist that the people only trust this national and prestigious organ when their members think about national interests and practically work on that end.
